It probably needed some longer time to acclimate to the tank. Looks pretty good.

torch coral likes lots of light so you might want to place it towards the top or middle of your tank. Also: Avoid placing the Torch near other corals. Contact with a sweeper tentacle will cause extreme pain to even large humans.
