Yellow fiji leather

I've got a really bright awesome yellow fiji leather that has been in my tank for probably a year. I recently upgrade my mh lighting to lumenbrights and it has not done well since. It was towards the top of my tank and barely opened or showed polyp extension. I finally got tired of this and moved it down in my tank and it is now fine again. I really want this up top where it was, and was wondering if anyone else has success with this with strong lighting....
Big tanks are only big to people who don't have them.

If you just upgraded your lighting & didn't provide some type of screening,then the Fiji was probably in shock due to the increased intensity.These leathers prefer strong light,so just move it gradually back up over a few weeks & it should be fine.HTH

I agree with 45commando. My yellow fiji can take couple weeks to adjust itself to new lighting or placement.
