Zoas are closed and one or two are floppy

Hi, on Sunday I bought these and they were fully opened. For the last three days they have closed and one or two seem floppy. Is it just a waiting game or can I do anything. Water prams are good. Do they need more light? Or should I just wait? Thanks

I've never kept a zoa but it does look like you have some kind of hair algae growing on them so they are dying. I'm not completely sure though.

They've only been in for 5 days. I was thinking that they need time to open up maybe? There is hair algae on the rock behind them

What are your actual parameters? What kind of lighting? What kind of flow?

I'm just getting back into reefs and have purchased three zoa frags recently. I put them about mid- tank, low- moderate flow and they seem okay. They opened up almost immediately after I got them.

What is your phosphate at? Do a 50% wc and get alot of that algea out of there by hand. Also lower your photoperiod to 6-8hrs. Then do 25% wc until your nitrate get to 0.
