Zoanthid Help

All of the zoanthid frags I have opened right away when I got them (within a day to a day and a half) but these guys don't want to open for me.

A blue legs climbed on them a couple days ago but I promptly plucked her off and into the other tank she went. One polyp opened slightly once. I've had them lower down with less flow and higher up with more flow.

They also look like (for lack of a better term.. Or any term) they're pooping?

They're gone. My boyfriend took them out cause he figured they were dead. Might have been I don't know. They developed like a cloudy coating on them and they closed polyps looked like they just deflated almost.

All the other zoanthids I have are doing great. Fully opening and growing new polyps. For some reason this frag just wouldn't cooperate with me.

Sounds like they could have had a fungus. A dip in a product like CoralRX might have been helpful.

I was thinking of trying that but didn't have any at the time but I've ordered a new bottle

Thanks for the help.
