They look fine since a majority are opened up. If they were all closed up then that would mean something bumped into them, inappropriate lighting, or a water quality issue.

Yeah heard those aren't great for growing corals. But zoas are pretty hardy and don't need as much light as most corals.

Nothing to add. Stronger light will brighten them up. Just acclimate them to it, don't just blast them with high light right off the bat. You might do more harm than good.

More blue/actinic lighting brings out the colors. What light are you getting?
