Monti's not doing well

So I bought a beautiful sunset monti, and it did great for a week...then I bought a superman monti, that did well for a week or so.. and now both look like crap!

The sunset looks like it's bleaching out but that's not possible because my lighting is 8 led watts for an 8g nano. I know my lighting is moderate to low and I'm okay with that. Everything I have is thriving as is except these 2 new guys.

The sunset is patchy white with the green polyps almost all gone.

The super mans blue polyps are all retracted.

Any ideas?

What are the current parameters in the tank? Though you are "ok" with such low lighting, then why put in corals that require high lighting? This is most definitely the reason for the sunset, and maybe the superman as well...but flow and parameters can also affect polyp extension.
