Did you acclimate them to your tank or the lighting?

But did you acclimate them to the new lights? Coral under t5ho could be under much lower light conditions when then moved under some of our higher powered LEDs that penetrate water much more effectively than bulbed units. What kind of lighting are we talking about? It could even be a flow issue...have you tried moving it? How long has it been in the tank?

Have you tried moving the ones that aren't opening to the area where the one that is opening up is opening up? Probably a flow issue.

They are actually within inches of already open frags. I dont know whats wrong. The only thing i can agree with is the lighting. ....
