    SPS polyp extension

    Hello all

    I was wondering. I saw this frag in a friends tank and if had as well as many others sps's have great polyp extension all day long. I put it in my tank and I get next to no extension and the frags aren't doing as nice. Now
    I have a 108 gal with one 400 14k dead center and 2x175w 14k. Light I don't think should be an issue as he has 3x250 10k over a 180 with 2x vho atinics.
    So my quesiton is what would you think is something I should be looking at ?

    Water peramintures are perfect, test very recently.

    I am thinking it might be water flow
    as I only have 4 1200 maxi jets and the return with isn't much.

    I also feed a varity of food.

    give it time, when corals are moved[which they don't like] they have to adjust to a myrid of things one of which is a different water chemistry.
