Hello,
I got some Zoanthids last Friday. I don’t know the variety specifically but I think they’re pretty. They were in the “bargain bin” of my fish store, but the employee ensured me they were healthy and just a drab color.
Anyways, about 3/4 of the heads opened, until my hermit ripped the plug off of its spot trying to retrieve trapped nori.
The plug fell in the sand for a night, and I just put it back and glued it better.
However it hasn’t opened up at all. No heads are open.
should I move it? Or is it just angry or something.

So they were open prior?
Is the plug now firmly glued down?

I would give them a few days to open back up.
