I moved them up to a spot with more flow and they almost instantly started opening. I think they might be getting their color back a little. We'll see how it goes

if they got dull, it may be due to insufficient lighting. raising them closer to the lamps should help with that if so.

I got this favia last night and it seems to be doing good. I've seen its little tentacle things come out a couple times and just now I watched it grab a peice of mysis shrimp and pull it in. Any idea what kind of favia it is?

LPS corals can significantly change their 'volume' because (depending on the type of LPS coral it is) they can increase/decrease the size of their polyps (either by drawing water into them or expelling the water).

With this type of coral actual 'growth' will come form of expanded skeletal structure and additional polyps.

Oh got it. Do you have any idea what kind it is specifically?
