My rainbow incinerators and even my rastas are way smaller than my utter chaos. Anyone have similar experience?

Could something else be causing my zoas to shrink up like this?

i just started feeding reef roids this week i wonder if itll make a difference

Kinda hard to see but the rainbow incinerators are behind the utter chaos, and the rastas are al

Similar situation. Rastas are relatively small for me and close to the base.

Here is a pic of mine closed up after a frag session. About 50 here.

My incinerators stayed super small and eventually dwindled to nothing.

Utter chaos ive had in previous tanks were always quite a bit larger than this as well, although this tank has stronger lighting and my sps are doing well in it.

im going to try to introduce more nutrients to the water and lower my zoas down

I find trying to spot feed zoas just irritates them except for the odd polyp that seems to enjoy it, I used to use roids but I find they do better just catching the odd piece of mysis when I feed my clowns. Best bet is to just hide them under a ledge on the sand and move them out slowly once they start getting back to normal

Some zoa just have tiny polyps. My Rasta are tiny and they’re super healthy. Some have huge polyps. My CB white zombies are like the size of nickel lol. Ok so I can find a pic of my rastas but here are my bob marleys theyre the same size and going well.
