Hi guys... I've purchased these two new corals.. and can't find the actually names of them.. can anyone help. They have been in 2 days now and the first day both were fully open, but today not as such at all. Hopping they are just settling in. Thanks

Those would be a mushroom coral and either a finger leather or kenya tree. Will be easier to ID when it opens up.
Soft corals will do things like this from time to time, especially when going into a new system. They have the ability to shed their 'top layer'. It is theorized that this is to help prevent parasites and other such things.
