Kenya Tree droopy with polyps extend

Hi All,

I read alot of comment regards of kenya tree droopy.
But still can't find the root cause from mine.
When i first got it 2 weeks ago, it still able to stand straight, but recently it begin to droopy for almost a week even though the polyps are all extend.

The only things that i ever change is just water change.

Anyway I can help it up ?

Thanks

How does everything else look? If all is well, just chalk it up to a mood...

What's your lighting?
Is your ALK at 8 or 9?
Corals that droop is usually too much light, not enough light and or bad water

Everything else was healthy.
I'm running par38 currently. Kh around 10.
I place it under high light & low flow. Sometimes it does straight up but no long.

Should i place it back at bottom to adjust light ? But it already stay on top for 3 weeks now.

I had one that just got moody. It would droop randomly and perk up a day or a week later. As long as it is extended, it’s generally healthy.

Soft corals go through periods of oh lets just call it "unhappiness"..
That is VERY common and does not indicate a problem at all..
Many times it just seems to be how they clean/replenish their outer tissue layers keeping it free from algae,etc.. Many times it seems to be part of their growth process as some times they come out of that slump bigger/stronger than before..
