Stunned Zoo Polyps..will they recover?

Hey guys. I had about 5 inches of clearance around my torch coral but I guess that wasn't enough and I'm guessing it stung my (Fluff acquired) frag of zoo polyps. These polyps used to be so healthy, have more than tripled in size, and now I haven't seen them open in days. Does it just take a while to recover, or are they goners now? A few polyps on the edge of the reef plug are opening, but I'd say 80% are closed.

Thanks.

Move them as far away from that torch as possible and give them some time to recover. They should be ok. I've had mine get stung by anemones and bounce right back.

Thanks, Fluff. They've been moved away for a few days. Yesterday, I moved them even farther away.

Hopefully they'll come around soon.
