Hello All! I recently got my corals that I ordered. I got a blue spruce candy cane and green watermelon mushroom :) Both arrived happy and healthy. I acclimated, dipped, and placed near the bottom of the tank. I left my light off for an hour (AI Prime) and then put it on acclimation mode. The light is currently at a very very low setting. I noticed that the candy cane's mouth is open. I know the corals are stressed from shipping, but I don't really know what to look for if the coral is doing bad or good. The mushroom seems just fine :)
