When did you get them? Where are they placed in the tank? Flow? Lighting?

I'm no expert but they don't look too healthy.

Well I did figure out what it was, it's an isopod parasite. Did some fancy bait & netting to get him out of my 90. And did a little bit of shrimp surgery and he's now in recovery

Here he is in my rye glass, I guess I have to find a bigger cup. The white mass is the parasite.

How long should I leave him in qt for? How long can he survive in there?

I've upgraded him from about a half a cup to a gallon.

The rye glass was way more important than the juice jug

They don't look good IMO there's some "stuff" on them almost looks like Coraline algae. Were they nice and open when you picked them out?

Here's why healthy zoas are supposed to look like. Maybe they just need some time, mine opened up within a day. But they looked liked the picture below when I picked them up.

These are mine, about 4 months now

+1.. Idk what it is about them but they definetly look less then healthy. My guess would be either lighting or salinity.

What kind of lights are running and what is the flow like where they are. Salinity is good IMO. Not sure about the algae though... Sorry
