They are super sensitive to acclimation. With them I would always acclimate at least an hour. Can't change it now. They will eaither settle in or they won't.

It takes time with new corals for them to get accustomed to your tank, the lights, the temp, the flow and the fish.

If some of them are out that's a good sign. It will probably take another couple days for the rest to come around. It may help to also lower the temp a couple degrees.

Don't worry about. There is not really anything you can do at this point. If some are open and pumping the rest should start soon.

IMO those things are like weeds. You cant kill them. Hopefully you`ll be OK. Just make sure you keep good check of your water parameters and you should be OK. Maybe take a water sample to your LFS to double check that your test are OK.
