If your zoas do not open, you may want to dose with vit C. Reef Central has a very long and useful discussion that has been archived. Some expert recommended Nutribiotic brand sodium ascorbate because it is a vit c compound that has been stripped of the acidity. It caused a bacteria bloom. My tank does much better with Spring Valley brand 500 mg
vit C tablets from Wal Mart. It is much cheaper too!
