Did I kill my coral?

After dipping new coral in Coral Rx, I accidentally did a quick rinse in plain RO instead of saltwater. I had to leave my house so I'm not sure how they are doing. I'm in a panic though that I might have killed them. Did I?

They are a zoa covered rock and an alveopora. I just got home and some of the zoas are looking ok. Part of the alveopora has some polyps that are extended a little. Hopefully they will perk up. I understand it can take a few days. The alveopora is going back to the LFS though since I learned after the fact that they are hard to keep and also because I'm new to reef keeping.
