Is my elegance coral acting normal?

Ive had this elegance about a week now. First few days it was fully open but recently its opening just not fully. Please see attached picture.

My phosphates, dkh, ammonia/nitrite/nitrates all seem to be in check.

I have the elegance at the bottom sand bed in low flow area of tank.

Anything else I should check to possibly ensure this coral does fine? Does it look ok from what you can tell in the picture?

Can't necessarily comment whether or not it looks fine...but you can do some searches on this forum regarding the elegance coral. They do not necessarily have a good survival rate in captivity, even if all your tank parameters are top-notch.


Current Tank Info: 90g mixed reef w/ 55g sump/fuge.
