While in a temporary tank during a move, 2 colonies of green or pink palys turned all white. I've just assumed they were dead but I wondered why they didn't melt or rot away. Was just poking at them in my new tank to figure out how to remove or grow something over them. They have been this way for three months but just secreted a lot of https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170120/0455e46e799ccf705192d39fb7508ba9.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170120/1d41c23613cbeb60a33afd8abbe904c6.jpgthat white stuff live palys or zoas do and I noticed some are getting darker ( I'm assuming maybe just getting algae on them or something) could they still be alive or if dead, could they poison tank if I try to scrape off? I added this rock to my new DT hoping they would grow back and I'd rather not undo rock work

Those palys don't die. They will come back once exposed to light. They grow like weed.
