I left out that it was the gel, it is. Sorry should have been more specific. Hoping he opens up, as of now he has been pretty small. Thanks again for the advice.

Things are ok, except I have shrimp, a dwarf blue hermit that keep bothering him and then he gets really small and takes hours to open up.

Any advice on that?

They might be attracted to dead tissue or algae growing on the torch. You could put some plastic mesh around him, but don't disrupt light or water flow.

Is it normal for it to shrink up like that and just leave it alone and he will grow?

When irritated or at night they will pull almost all the tissue back into the stems. It will come out if conditions are right and he adjusts.
