Ok, so what I would do is move them to the floor of the tank. Assuming your water params are fine (we aren't sure on Ca and Alk, but your other coral is ok), I am assuming too much light too quickly. I'd move them down for a few days and see how it goes.

well, I'd be worried now, unfortunately. But if you are confident in your water params, and you have other corals that are doing well, then just too much light to quick upon acclimation is about the only thing I would assume. Worth a try. Some times Zoas don't acclimate well to new tanks... it does happen, even if you have other zoas in the tank thriving. Sometimes you can find a reason, sometimes not.

Ok thanks for the advice. Hopefully my zoa don't die. I wouldn't want 25$ down the toilet

The first two are how they were put before and the third one is how it is set now

It is usually best to always start your frags off low in the tank and then gradually move them up over the course of a few weeks. I think at this point it's the best course of action you can take.

There is a product called revive you could try using (or any alike product) it is an iodine based treatment to help corals in trouble. You get a bucket add the amount directed on the bottle to one or so gallons of your current tank water and swirl for about 15 minutes. It worked wonders on mine!

Definitely not good. You may try the revive suggestion. I haven't ever used it but would try about anything at this point. In my experience zoas that don't open in the first few days don't make it.
