Galaxea Frustration


New Member
Purchased this rather large (softball sized) galaxea coral nearly 2 weeks ago. We got it straight from the LFS and it had not even been removed from the shipping bags. I've got it placed at the bottom of the tank in a medium flow area but it just does not seem happy to me, as I've yet to see any opening of it. Starting to really think that it's dead and I've got a skeleton in my tank, though my husband continues to tell me that he's read that some galaxeas can take up to a month to acclimate and open.
