Hello! I just got my first corals a couple days ago and they are acclimating to my tank and lighting. I ordered them online and when they arrived they looked great! I got a candy cane and watermelon mushroom. My question is about the candy cane. I got it off of the WYSIWYG section of the website and it looked pretty small, but when I put it in my tank it looked really small. I’m not sure if it’s stressed and shriveled or just acclimating. Any help would be appreciated thanks!

Don't see any skeleton (pic is a bit small) but looks like mine usually do (and one I just got the other day) when they're acclimating to new tank. My others recovered just fine from this (before dinos killed them off a few months later but that's another story).
 

Do you quarantine new coral before adding it to your reef tank?
