They maybe responding to a certain stimuli in your tank. What are the stats/parameters? What other inhabitants you have in there? Did you acclimate?

Apart from loads of algae everywhere! What are your parameters? Zoas are pretty hardy so something must be off if they are not opening...

I see your smaller set has opened, how about your bigger frag? Its there any fish messing with them? I notice my zoas will close up just like that when a hermit crab walks on top of them, just saying.

It's not dying, it's just ticked off. Post all parameters and maybe there is something off? The first thing I would test is specific gravity with my refractometer.
I see diatoms, this is a fairly new set up?
