First off I am fairly new into corals and polyps..still reading all I can.

First question.

I have a 55gal tank that has been set up for a month and half. I have green button polyps and orange/yellow polyps in there. THey have been great till the last few days..they are closed.
What can I do to get them to be nice and full and open?

There are 4 65watt lights on them ESU coralifes..2 white and 2 actinic.
Amm is 0
Nitrite is 0
Nitrate is 0
Ph is 8.2
Sal is 1.025
Temp is 79

Any suggestions?

2nd. The cabbage leather coral in a 40gal..with 2 65 watts on them...
Its doing fine on all its areas but one..I am going to try and take a pic tomorrow of it...but it looks like its rotting..or being chewed away...

There is only hermits, snails and an engineer goby in there.

Sal is 1.023
Everything is at 0

Thanks
MIsty

Looks like one of the cabbages was torn off or fell off of that spot not really like it's rotting. I had three on one rock and I pulled one off as a frag and that's what was left.

On the polyps just give them some time and see if they open back up. Mine do that every once in a while.
