Burning softies

I recently added two 175 watt 10K halides to my 9 month old system. The system previously had two 110 watt VHO's (super actinic and 50/50). After about ten minutes the Tonga toadstools seemed to burn and not extend their polyps. I immediately turned the lights off. Is this unusual? How do I properly acclimate the toadstool and the other softies to the more powerful lights?

The softies I have are : Zooanthids, 2 gorgonians several mushrooms and several star polyps
