Since you answer all of my noob questions I'm just going to request your cell number and text you every second that I think I'm have an issue. Haha j/k.
As for feeding, I am using a green Phyto crap that I put in 8 drops bi weekly.
The lighting is 6.2 watts led lighting. I know that's low compared to some of the Par38s but Cadlights claims its equal to about 48 watts t5ho. I can't prove this, but my corals open up the millisecond it comes on.
I'm glad to help
. There are plenty of very knowledgeable people on these forums whom i will imitate from time to time.
I think it depends a lot on the type of zoa also. Some enjoy lower light and others higher.
I'm inclined to think it's your lighting.
Are they mounted high in the tank? What temperature is this lighting and what type? Perhaps the temperature is just more in the daylight 6700k range and they appear less colorful. If I remember correctly you have an 8G aqueon evolve? If it's the stock lighting I'd definitely consider upgrading.
If you know you want to stock lots of coral you could do some pretty awesome things with LEDs for cheap. one par38 would be plenty, or you could make your own fixture with the 12 or 8 led kit from aquastyleonline too.
I base these suggestions under the assumption that your water quality is good, and that's likely given these are zoanthids which are very forgiving for the most part.
But before any of that is considered maybe others can post their suggestions.
