I got this coral today I've had it for about 3-4 hours in the tank and it hasn't opened up I've tried moving it around but it seems worse

Every time you touch it it will just shrivel back up so find it a good home and let it be.

It's actually doing much better now that I left it alone but hey do you know if I have to turn off the light completely at night or can I leave the blue one on

Do not leave the moonlights on overnight. Fish need a period of total darkness to sleep, since they do not have eyelids

its normal when you mess in your tank the Coral will be closed all the time... its a sinularia sp. .. just leave it be and it will be open in no time... and like trendybrendy said no lights on overnight. fish and corals do sleep.

These corals seems to do best with a lot of light and a lot chaotic flow IME. (especially if the base is secure)
