How old is your tank and what is your water parameter? They need higher salinity and good mag, alk and calcium. How do you acclimate them?

I'd give them a dip in some type of coral disenfectant like revive or an iodine solution to remove any pests that could be bothering them.

What size tank, how old, and what kind of light do you have? Acclimation is a must for corals, fish, or just about any animal life form you put into your tank. A good coral dip is a very good idea as well and i strongly recommend coral rx dip. Zoo's can be picky.
