    Looks like it could be Sinularia flexibilis, need to see it open though.

    I just got it yesterday so it hasnt opened up fully. How long do they usually take to open up?

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    They can take a few days to open. If it's still stubborn and not opening try increasing the flow if the coral is in a lower flow area. If it's still closed after than check your water chemistry.
