Duncan polyps. HELP!!!

I recently purchased a Duncan polyp from my lfs. It looked great in the store, fully open and nice color. After bringing it home it stayed closed for a day. The guy at lfs told me that might be normal. A day later it started to open up. I'd say about a 1/3 by the next day it was fully closed and has stayed that way for about three days. I checked all water levels and everything is in order. My light is deep blue high output 2 48inch 54w T5. He told me it would be okay cause they don't need alot of light and are usually placed low to middle of tank. I just moved it higher about an hour ago, waiting to see if there's a change..... If anybody has ANY advice please let me know
