Ok now the questions. In my BC29 there all closed up BUT in the 8 gallon there open. The only difference is the BC29 has a very very dim moonlight now and the 8 gallon's moonlights are very bright that they light the living room up pretty well, could that be the difference? I'm just worried because they were open when I put them in today and there IMO pretty nice looking.

Also I was worried because my hermit crabs were all over the zoas so I plucked like 5 off the zoas and put them in a separate tank. Also my peppermint shrimp and cleaner shrimp have been all over them in the BC29. I don't have shrimp on the 8g.

Should I be concerned?

Not one head is open right now in the BC29

You can see the difference in the lighting as well. I'm hoping thats just the case.

Thanks for your help
