Coral not opening

So I have a problem with my new coral frags. My gsp aren't opening. Today was the first day and yes I know it takes a while. But my question is when I should be worried about the coral. And also I noticed my toadstool not really responding to the moderate to high flow. However the coral likes the no flow area of my tank. Is this weird or should i just let him adjust to the moderate flow? Thanks

Wherever the coral likes is where you should keep it. I don't think leathers like high flow anyway. As far as the GSP, what are your current parameters? What other corals do you have in the tank, how long have you had them, and how are they doing? How old is the tank?

"Calcium and stuff" are the things we need to know. Actually, alkalinity would be the test i would want to know the results of. If you are planning on keeping corals, I suggest having functional test kits on hand. At least alkalinity. Corals will open and live with low calcium levels as long as alk is stable, they just won't grow much.

Might have found the solution. Salinity was too high. I calibrated wrong so the salinity was wrong
