dead/dieing zoa's?

When i bought my nem it has these little bumps next to it, they look like they could be zoas or at least were zoa's. Is it possible to nurse these guys back to health? or should i just call it a loss as they weren't in the price to begin with?

I'm not an expert, but what if u split the rock and moved them to the other side of the tank if they were still alive? Wouldn't this get them a better chance of survival? Definitely interested in finding out the answer because I plan on getting an anemone soon for my clowns

Remember to be careful when fragging and wear the appropriate gear. Especially as you don't know what type they are. Have fun!

you need to add plankton to the water as food (about a shot glass every other day)...you can also make coral food by finely grinding up shrimp and scallops and adding your tank water to make it liquidy...and just gently squirt the food close to their mouths...

i have seen bleached corals come back to life...but you really need to baby them in order to save them...

instead of cutting the rock ill move the nem, seems like its going to be much less work as the nem is so close to them it would be tough to cut them away without harming the nem...heres to hoping it works!
