mystery acro question

I received these two acro frags fresh cut about three weeks ago from a local,
I do not remember what he was calling them, I have yet to see any p.e. from them day or night. Have plenty of other sps doing great, s.s.c, green slimmer ect
Parameters are all in range, calcium was on the low side at 320

I'd give them more time to adjust. Some acros can take quite a while to adjust to our tanks even if they were grown in captivity. Also freshly cut I doubt it would be happy yet. I it still hasn't done anything in a couple months then something could be up

Have the frags encrusted yet? New frags tend to spend most of their energy on encrusting on their new substrate (frag plug, or rock from the new tank).

Are your water parameters good now, or is calcium still low? I would have expected some amount of encrustation after 1 month.
