Water Parameters? Lighting? How long has your tank been set up? How long have you had the zoas? How long did you acclimate them?

What coloration are the other polyps, what other corals are in your tank (If your profile isn't up-to-date), have you noticed any fish picking on them, and is there any white "cheese" covering any?

They are light pink. There are no fish picking on them all my fish are reef safe. What does the white "cheese" look like.

Reef safe is a suggestive statement. Couple of things. The tank being new could have something to do with it. pH swings can cause them to be unhappy. Temp swings will do the same thing. Corals like stable conditions and a new tank tends not to have stable conditions. The tang, not a good choice for the tank size. The Sailfin will get very large and need at minimum a 6' tank to be happy. Tangs can sometimes nip at zoa polyps.
