New zoa frag title

Hello all. Roughly 2 weeks ago I purchased a frag of assorted zoas from the lfs. All heads were fully open in their tank. Since then I've only seen one head fully open (far right in pic). My lights are set lower than the lfs frag tank so I know that isn't the issue. I've tried various locations in the tank with differing flow and always achieve the same results. Tomorrow I plan to drop by the store and get a bottle of ReVive, I hope it will help restore these zoas. In the meantime, does anyone have ideas what my issue is? Tank contains other zoa and paly colonies, gsp, and montipora. All are showing good growth and are thriving. Water parameters: NH3 0 ;NO2 0 ;NO3 <5 ; phosphate 0; salinity 1.026. Thanks in advance.

Just leave them alone for a week or so. Coral don't like being handled and moved around.

SoFloReefer - I enjoy this hobby and most people in it are cool. Someone trying to sell you a coral for $200 is trying to rip you off. They are no longer cool.

calcium? alk? mag?

and as roger mentioned let them acclimate, stop moving them, they cannot adjust to new conditions if the conditions keep changing.

insert witty catchphrase here

Zoas do like dirtier water. I have a mixed reef and keep my nitrates around 10ppm. Everything is growing nicely.
