OF2F, I think were thinking on the same page here. I think under proper lighting, those Zoanthids may start to color up a bit.

I have them under 130 watt power compacts. They are in a 20 gallon long tank. after a few days i may move them up higher towards the light if need be.

hmm... should be plenty of light, Perhaps that's just the color they are suppose to be... or they could be a little stressed and will color up in a few days...
