*Leather Coral Is This Normal??*

You can see from the Pictures how one of my leather corals is opened up and also when it closes. Is it supposed to stay open during day or night? Also the spaghetti looking leather coral has been in the tank for 6 days and has not opened up yet any suggestions? Same with the Mushroom looking leather coral. 55 Gal. Wet/Dry filter, 260watt Compact Lighting, 50lbs. live rock, 4in deep sand bed live sand with crushed coral and fine live sand. I have feather duster, bubble anemone, frog toadstool anemone, sun polyps, few other types of polyps sorry about pic quality.Thanks alot

New pics of leathers. Where I bought it they said give it a few weeks to reopen up?
