Sick Duncan/Whisker Coral?

Hello everyone, I bought two whisker or Duncan corals a few days ago I put them beside each other at the bottom of the tank on the sand, one of them was doing amazing for a few days then today when I turned on the lights it was open but smaller than the other days, its tentacle things were hanging down, and its more of a green color than yesterday, does anyone know what's happening?.

Has it opened more once the lights have been on for a while? My Duncan takes an hour or so to fully open after lights on

It doesn’t sound like there is an issue to me. Duncan are extremely hardy. They can open and close for many reasons, most are normal.
Of it were closed up for a long period of time I would move it to another location in the tank to see if that helps.

Yah, they're crazy resilient. I had one that was closed tight for 3 months and just popped open one day,.been great ever since.
