Unhappy zoas

I had my actinic bulb burn out on me and I am thinking it was never very bright to begin with, with my new bulb my tank looks amazing and my zoas did for a couple days.

Could the lighting be the issue or could something be eating them?
My parameters aren't perfect but nothing has changed in 2 months which is as long as I have had the zoas, everything else is happy.

Scratch that. I did a FW dip two days ago for 3 minutes and they are opening today, either they aren't being bothered anymore or they are acclimating to the light. Either way I'm happy.

Yeah I liked my zoas before but now they pop like crazy. I have a 2 bulb coralife T5 HO and changed from the stock actinic bulb to the zoo med HO actinic. It was $8 and brought out amazing colors. I was beyond pleased.
