Sick Pipe Organ??

I just added this pipe organ approximately 3 days ago. At the LFS, it was fully open and looked great. Since I've put it in my tank, it has only partialy opened. Is this normal? What can I do to for it if it is sick?

TIA,
Calvin

Please tell us more about your tank, lighting, water parameters, other tank inhabitants? etc...

72 gal fitted, w/ CustomSeaLife 4 x 65 watt pc light. This Pipe Organ shares the tank with several reef safe fish, a Frog spawn, bubble and several mushroom corals who all look to be doing fine. As far as I can tell, none of the other tank mates have picked on it. As far as water quality goes, ph - 8.3, Ammonia - 0, no2 - 0, no3 0 - 5ppm. Hope that helps.

It is probably just acclimating to the different conditions than it's used to, if it hasn't opened up in another day or so, I would move it to an area with different lighting and water movement.

Okay, It's looking a bit worse now then it did yesterday. The only open polyps are on the right side. Everything else it retracted. I did notice a couple serpant stars had hitched it with him. I'm assuming thats what they are. Could they be to blame? It there anything a can do to fire this fellow up about life again??
