Well, some more info would be helpful. What are current parameters? Tank size? Lighting? Flow? Type of filtration/skimmer? How long have they been in the tank? Was there any acclimation for them? Were there any changes to the tank recently?

The one in the second picture is nothing but a skeleton...the other is still hanging on. Hopefully with more info we can help you save it.

Well I have a t5 with 4 bulbs lots of flow in my 46 gall bow front and everything is perfect but my salinity but it's not too high iv had them for almost a month traded the first one and got it back because he didn't want it I did a small acclamation per by keeping it in the bag and every 15 min put a little bit of water for about 2 hrs and they were in my tank with the lights about half that also I haven't done anything different with my tank but try my new light on it for a day but that's it

This is basically a duplicate thread. Obviously you have moved these corals back from your frag tank, did you move the metal halide light over also? If so just give them some time, overnight is not going to make a difference. They need some time to recover with clean water and proper lighting, being under a 175w MH in a 10g probably caused damage and will likely cause the recovery period to be longer. Just be patient and after a week post back on how they are doing.
