It's hard to see in the pic. I need to invest in an underwater camera
The balling up is normal, the milky stuff is their slime the emit with stress... Give them the night and go from there.

Put them at the bottom of the tank first so they can acclimate to the lighting.

Parameters are good. An worst case the
Frag was only 5 bucks so it's not a huge kick in the pants. I'm excited though. Our zooas (I think) that hitch hiked here are doing well and even spreading. So hopefully these will too

Yea I agree. They will bleach if they get too much light too quickly.

Id say shut the lights off for the night, they need to adjust to the params first then ease them into the lighting
