    Wondering why polyp extension happens only at night?
    Is this normal?
    My Digitfera is open all day.

    Some corals are prone to extend more at night. I have had pieces that take months befoer they open during the day. It is not at all uncommon.

    No worries. Give it time to settle in. All corals I think are naturally more extended at night due to feeding habits.
