This rock usually has fluro green things/stems that come out of all the holes.and they move.

before the renovation of my tank and moving ornaments around they looked like that, reasonably healthy, the plate coral had the bumps expanding a fair way out and the center opened and closed, and the other had the fluro green extending outwards for the whole day, is it possible they r simpley distressed, its only been a day since the change.is there any way of rejuvinating them? thanks for ur help
