I would guess along the same lines at kurt. The difference in intensity between your MH and the light over the 3gal is going to be huge. They are used to so much more light that when you put them in the new tank they are still waiting for those MH to turn on before they open. It will take some time for them to photo-acclimate to the new conditions.

ok, thanks. i havnt seen the xenia frag, it was about 3 polyps. they never really attached and make an appearance now and then, ill get it out the next time i see it. and its kinda off topic but where do leds fit in in the lighting scale? like in between mh and vho (example) ? but how does that pistol shrimp idea sound in there? just a tiny baby one. then maybe a little goby.(ill be sure to keep up on almost daily small pwc's).
Thanks!
