Both palythoa and zoanthids are toxic. I suppose it's possible there is some chemical warfare going on, but my bet is they are getting used to new lights. (was this colony already established in your tank?)

Zoanthids were there for couple of weeks prior two me adding 1) more live rock(with what looked like Palythoa on one of the rocks, which I only noticed after putting rocks in the tank) and 2) adding new lights few days after live rock. Thats when they started to close up. Palythoas (if that's what they are) are growing bigger every day. Are they the fast growing kind?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

given the fact that some are poking out and it doesn't look like they are dying I think they'll be fine, just give them a few days and they'll probably open back up...
