Zoas dying..?

Hey guys! Im needing some quick help... I have a colony of zoas which actually were the first ones i bought for this tank about a month ago which seem to be dying..they look like theyre melting away into themselves...all my other zoas are doing fine! I had them toward the bottom of the tank so i just moved them up tiwards the middle........the tank is a 14g biocube which has been up for about 2 months already and ive been checking the water weekly and everything has been good

first let me ask what are your water parameters ? (good don't tell me nothing)
high nitrates along with phosphates can cause what your describing
is there anything around them that can irritate them (sponge,hermits,ect)
so can lighting some zoa's need low light some need more
same goes for flow some need more some need less
learning to read your zoa's is a plus they can tell you something is not right
if there on the bottom and closed up could be to much light try moving to a less lite area
Fish are like lifesavers
They come in different colors
