Zoa: Dead or Alive?

Here's a pic. Been like this for a week and half since I got it. Didn't look too hot, but was practically free. Parameters all good and stable. Temp good, lights on for 7.5 hours a day. All other corals look great (green poly toadstool, other zoas, sympodium blue). This is in a tank that is about a month old and cycled.

Let me know what you all think!

Probably irritated with the algae on it. Try dipping them

No I'd look up the right ratio for a peroxide dip. That will kill the algae

Alright. There was macro algae all around it, but I killed that. I will look up the suggested ratio like you are saying.

I am seeing that a 50:50 solution for 2-4 minutes is recommended. Does that sound right? Also it was suggested that the frag be placed in a high flow spot afterwards. Sound good?

I wouldn't put it in a high flow spot. I would try a lugols dip, and not a peroxide dip, if the algae is gone.
What exactly are your parameters? What kind of flow is it in now?

Nitrate 0-20ppm
Nitrite 0
Ammonia 0
pH 8.5
Kh 180
Salinity 1.026
Temp 80F

8.5 gallon tank
Aquaclear 110 for circulation
Par30 led bulb 18,000K (~12 inches away from top of tank)

This frag is near the bottom with moderate flow. I could put in in a lower flow spot.

0-20ppm is a huge range for nitrates, that could be your problem there if it's at the 20 ppm part of that range...

I say 0-20 because my test is not very accurate and no color is zero and a very light off white is 20. My eyes cannot really tell the difference, but I would say it is closer to no color than having color.

Wouldn't that effect all the colors though? Not just the one?
