Umbrella coral lighting question

How much light does an Umbrella Coral require. This is a shot of my Umbrella the canopy is open, but it is drooped over and not erect. Its been in the tank for 5 days.

Mine seems pretty flexible to light, but also pretty temperamental. It's been doing great for the past few months because it hasn't been moved. When I was moving it, it would look much like yours (worse actually) most the time. Finally I left it alone and it's flourishing - same situation with my toadstool.

Give it some time.

Here's mine. It looks like this everyday. I don't know whether the funnel shape means it's getting too much light or not enough. It's grown substantially and appears very healthy so I just assume not mess with him.
