    Just give them time to acclimate to your tank. These corals can and will go days to weeks without opening.

    Do you have sufficient flow? We have glove polyps that we discovered enjoy some water movement just across the top of them, not directly at them. Maybe yours are the same?

    thanks for the advice. i place my close under a shaded area but i think it will get sufficient flow as the whole base will be shaky sometime.

    I would give them some time. Mine get pissed for reasons unknown and have stayed closed for 3.5 weeks. So wait and see what happens.
