I'm relatively new to the reefing game and I got my first pair of hammers 4 days ago. One of my hammers is fully opened and looking better than it did in the lfs i got it from. The other one is looking good but not extending nearly as much. Both are sitting in areas that receive roughly 100 par and low-moderate flow however the one that isn't open as much is on a bit more exposed part of the rockwork. Im trying to be patient since that seems to be the key to 99% of this hobby but I'm curious at what point would moving it be an option since they coral appears healthy but isn't as desirable from an aesthetic standpoint.

Keep it there for a week or two. As long as the tentacles are out, you're ok. It's when they suck in far enough to see skeleton for a couple days, then I'd be worried

Thanks everyone, im know they are both healthy and the amount of flow/lighting isnt too much/too little for either. I'm trying not to sweat the small stuff and figured they need a few weeks anyways. Just want things to look as good as possible in my tank.
