id be patient. I noticed that my zoa frag wasn't opening for about a week then it just started opening. haven't seen an issue since. id watch the coloration more than anything. also is there any fish or invert that's bothering it?

The occasional hermit or snail might pass by, other than that, no. I noticed it has a lot of small white dots, but I also just bought a bullet goby, so I couldn't tell whether it kicked up sand or not.

Just called the LFS. Explained everything to him, he said to just wait a while. Not sure if that's a good idea, cause I've got a zoa rock not too far with a bunch of white specks. On top of that, found some aiptasia crawling around the zoa rock. Probably won't be buying coral from them anymore.

How long has your tank been set up for? What are your parameters and temp? Did your tank fully cycle?

Unfortunately I was naive and jumped on the whole LFS saying that my parameters were perfect, let's get some coral. It's about a week and a half old.

Yep there's the issue. The tank has not cycled and this the zoas are not opening due to levels of ammonia, nitrites and nitrates. I'd start doing water changes to keep them alive or take them back
