I have my GSP halfway up in the tank with medium flow and medium light. They are growing and spreading like wildfire. Mine will close up for days at a time though with no apparent reason but always open up eventually. Also, they close up when snails or hermits are messing around on it so that might be a cause as well.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I had a problem where my nitrates were high, but I did water changes and water is good now. My kenya tree died... I'm not sure my green star polyps are doing good....

If you had a nitrate issue that might be why they are a little reluctant to open up. Maybe give them a few more days and see what happens. they have to get used to the water being "good" again.

My GSP is so durable and hardy, I bet yours makes a comeback. Do you have a picture by chance?
