toadstool question

I brought one home for the first time yesterday, in the store it had full polyp extension and was well expanded. I've yet to witness this in my tank. It was acclimated for a period of 2 hours, it was under halides at the store(10K) and also my home(14K), I have it in a fairly high flow area.
Do they normally take this long for acclimation to their new environment, should I move it to a lower flow area could it be the lights? Any suggestions are appreciated.

It's going to tke it a couple of days to a week to fully aclimate to your tank Give it some time. This hobby is based on patience.

Yeah, I'd say wait a little. My toad tends to like medium flow, so you might consider that an option. But it takes time for them to acclimate to the tank.
