I already posted in another thread that my new clam from LA didn't make it.  I also got a fox coral and a grubes gorgornian from them as well.  I received the orders yesterday,  the fox came in a bag that had a small hole in it.  Some water had leaked out but for the most part the coral was still submersed.  The fox has not opened up yet and the gorgonian is not extending any polyps.  I just wanted to get opinions on the current state of health for these corals.

I wouldn't worry about them too much yet. The grubes may take a couple days to open. Fox corals don't always ship well so give it a few days to adjust.

I really hope the fox opens up and starts doing well, it was my reason for making the order.  I was inspired by the big fox in gena's drop off, very cool looking!
