    I think lighting is the problem.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    It's probably going to take a couple weeks to notice any dramatic change in growth and appearance. Keep feeding IMO. The video posted by Whiskey also addressed dipping the Acans in an Iodine base dip to combat bacterial infections. I would not expect to see significant improvement in such a short span of time.

    A feeding response is good news!
    Like Corailline said, it will take several weeks before you notice much difference, so keep feeding them meaty snacks and they should come around.

    Feeding response is really good, just keep doing it. Is that a worm behind the frag in the pic? I don't trust worms

    Also check at night to see if there getting stung from other corals. Some of my LPS corals have sweepers over 6" long.
