How long has the Duncan been in your tank? Some of them like moderate lighting and flow, or so I've heard. From my limited experience, my corals seem to cycle through periods where they are vibrant and fully extended to periods where they seem to be hibernating and conserving energy. They are fascinating to observe but I've certainly not figured them all out yet. I'd try protected night feedings to see if it perks up. Beyond that.... patiently watch and keep your tank in tip top shape. (Disclaimer: I'm not a skilled aquariast in real life however, I do play one on TV .
