What are your water parameters, and what kind of lighting are you using?

They shouldnt be white it should be tan to brown yours is almost see through that means that they have expelled their zooanthe algae probably in shipping, it will come back with the right lighting and parameters what size tank, and what is your salinity?

I will. They aren't supposed to be white. Lol. White means they have bleached and expelled the zooxanthellae which is the algae used for photosynthesis. The others are correct in they are supposed to be tan.
