when did u put them in there? if it was today then give them some time to adjust to your tank also if after a couple days they look worse or in somethings lose color move them down to the bottom they may not have had the same lights at the store. however mine from time to time will scrunch up but after a day or so will open back up just fine. im sure its just the move to a new tank. good luck

How did you acclimate them before placing them in the tank? What type of flow do you have them in? What type of light were they under at the LFS versus what you have them under?

They will naturally shrivel up at night and go to sleep, so if you are looking at them with the lights out that is not surprising either. They are usually pretty hardy and difficult to kill as well. Most of the time if they are unhappy they will let loose of the rock they are on and float off somewhere else in the tank.
