    I have a few types of zoos that are all fine, one was munched by a nudi but i got him, and there was very minimal damage. however one has been closed for a few days one r two polyps on it opened yesterday for a few hours, they dont appear to have pox or anything that I can see... theyre just closed... any concerns?

    Keep looking for and treating for nudis. Otherwise give them time and make sure they are in good flow and medium light.

    They can get pretty grumpy and stay closed for a little while until fully acclimated to your tank.

    Not to seem like an ass, but you have conflicting posts in this thread. So, is it a couple of days or a month? If it's a couple of days, then nothing to worry about. Almost a month, and I would expect them to start melting away to nothing.

    Ok, I see now. Well like I said, if they've been closed for a few days, I wouldn't be too concerned. I've seen all my Zoas/Palys close up at one time or another, and remained closed for as long as a week. Not sure why they closed, but they always eventually opened up again.
