Wow, looks like you're losing them... I'd say try an iodine dip and hope there aren't any Zoa eating inverts in your tank that could be causing the damage. The spiders are the most common threat, but you may have a diff. What are your water parameters and do you have any Vitamin C available?

My parameters are great. They actually did come out a little bit on the first day
i had them, just 2 opened about half way. My ocellaris nips at them every so often, but he seems to have stopped as I have not seen him do it today.
Last night when I was doing some maintenance, and i picked up the frag to inspect it a bit, and it gave me a pretty nasty sting and quite the migraine....so as of right now, they are very much alive just appear to be angry.

I was just informed (by my boyfriend how put them in the tank) that he just put them in the tank. The bag they were in was in the tank but I had not begun acclimating them yet, but he assumed I had already done it and it was okay to put them in.

Wow, quite a sting. I've never been stung like that. Did you have an open wound? If so, i'd be very careful when dealing with Zoanthids for they posess a polytoxin that's quite dangerous. Hope it's doing better.
