Hello everyone. I bought a mushroom coral with a few pollys on the same rock and some Zoe's the other day from the lfs, its been 3 days. Wel at the lfs The corals were wide open about covering the side of the whole rock. Well i got them home and placed and now they are not looking to good. They are in a low flow and i have a marz aqua 165 on the biocube. Its set at 20% blues and 1% whites. Any input on what i should do? Thx! here are my parameters

You could try moving them up towards the light for a few days and see how they respond. You might want to check them for pests as well.

Zoas don't like that much alk, in my experience, and tend to thrive in a tank with just a little more nitrate and phosphate. Give them a little time to adjust to the tank parameters. Three days is a short time.

As AlSimmons said check for pests for sure, but step up feeding a bit on your fish as well.

All advice is "Slowly and with moderation".
