Hi, I'm looking at the pic on an iPhone so the pic isn't huge but I can't see any problems with your zoas. You may want to have a look through them with something like a chopstick and part them to check that you have no nasties in there like sundial snails etc. Some snails will secrete a wool like thread to catch food, that could be the other thing you mentioned.

I am asking more than anything because I am no expert but, to me the small ones look like new ones. As in, it is spreading. From what I see in the picture I sure wouldn't be worried about it.

Again, I am no expert but.....What size is the tank. That isn't a lot of lighting if it is a good sized tank. Could just be a matter of not enough light. Also, how long has it been in the tank. Could just be getting used to the new surroundings.
