    It sometimes happens... they don't stay open 100% of the time - don't know why tho.

    watch out for the brown slime, if you see it on any of the frogspawn heads, might be best to remove that head asap, it will wipe out your other heads too and possibly affect your other corals.

    I`d start by testing your water and see from there.Also maybe add what fish you have.

    To much flow can cause them to close up, instead of getting food whit the tenticle they close and rely on what the have. They sentive corals.I have frog spwans and hammers they open up really big.

    You must check water parameters, and althought they like flow not too much flow dont have them in direct current in front of a power head or pump. I found mine do better at the bottom of the reef.
