How can I tell if my corals are doing well?

I have only four right now: zooa's, hammer, green polyp and an open brain. Everything but the brain opens up and flows with the water, looks good. Actually they look better here than they did in the store.

But the brain kinda just sits there, at night I've seen some tubular things pop out but no tentacles or anything. So how do I know he is ok? It's been about a week and he looks excatly the same.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Do you have it on the sand? Move it it could be the flow or the light bothering it. Have you tried to feed it? Try some frozen thawed mysis or brine shrimp. When thawing them do it on RO water and drain it so the nitrates stay down.
