Frogspawn looking pale

Iíve had this frogspawn for 5 days now and it hasnít extended as much as it was at the LFS. I feel like now itís loosing its color too.
I placed it on the bottom of the tank in the center but today moved it to the side and decrease the light intensity. Water parameters are all good.

Salinity 1.024
Ph8.3
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrates 5
Phosphates .03-.1

Alk 10.6
Calcium 530
Magnesium 1630

Iím definitely no expert, but 5 days doesnít seem too long especially if youíve moved it during that time. The lfs May have just gotten it in as well, so it may be in a sort of preservation mode.
I would double check light requirements , and if it likes high flow or low flow areas best. Iíd give it a little while to get settled.
Your conditions may indeed be perfect, Some will open right away, others a little longer. IMO I wouldnít worry just yet.

Iím going to wait a few days now that I moved it to a low flow area.

Give it some time. They can take a little while to settle in.

It appears healthy. It is now having to adjust to the lighting in your system, that hopefully is intense enough to keep photosynthetic corals, along with trying to adjust to the new flow that it is in. Just give it time.
