noob with some zooa's not opening..

I got a plug of about 20 polyps of some candy apple zoas and 7+ hrs later they are still not open. How long do they normally take to open up?? i did some searching and found out that some of them should normaly open up in a few hrs after.

is this so? I know zoas are pretty hard coral and thats why i got it as my starter ...anything i should look for/expect??

They are probably just adjusting still. How did u acclimate them? What are your water parameters?

Check your salinity. When I first got mine my salinity was 1.018 and that's why mine didn't open luckily my fish is a GSP which can handle fresh and marine.

Zoas are picky about the correct flow as well. Check and post your parameters with a pic on placement.
