They are looking a little bit stressed. Are they new?

PS it is nice to see another AA female in fish keeping!

Give them some time to adjust and should be fine.

I bought almost all of my corals from spikescorals.com and they've all come in great shape and opened up shortly after acclimation.

Do you put them on the bottom initially? I read that I should. But with all my others I didn't and they did fine.

The recommendation is usually start them on the bottom and work your way up. If you have light that isn't super intense you may be able to place them wherever and wiggle by, the light acclimation
