Sun coral quit opening

I have had a sun coral in my tank for about a month now it started coming out about 3 days after I put it in there and I have been feeding it every other day but the last 2 days it will not come out what do I need to do

The store where i got mine had them under an overhang of rock so I just placed mine in the least lighted area I could find. Mine still try to open in the day a bit, not sure if they are hungry or confused. lol

My concern is even though I was feeding them every other day is if they were getting enough to eat because they would gobble it up in no time and I just read if they eat and are open again before you get all the polyps fed they want more
