    They appear to be reaching for light

    I've had this reaction with too much light. Not trying to contradict anyone but I'd move the palys to lower light in our reef tank and after some acclimation time they would recover well. I would notice some palys stretching for light by extending there stalks but still look full but when I see the eyelashes tucked I always put them in lower light.

    I agree with @DSC reef , IME when they look like umbrellas they are getting to much light. You could try moving them to an area with less PAR.
