Coral advice

Was just wondering you no when coral is all open and beautiful in the shop? Then it gets bagged and you bring it home and it's all closed up how long does it take for it to open again ? They were much bigger and more vibrant, hopefully they open up soon like the little blue looking thing is actually a mush room that looked like an open umbrella and now resembles a button haha

That depends on the coral and the parameters of your tank.

Most will open within a day or l the following morning. However it ultimately depends on how much stress the coral was exposed to and the species of coral.

It could take anywhere from a few hours to a few days. They have to acclimate to your tank parameters
