Tbh i havent done anything different
Daily dosing
I dont really do water changes now so maybe that
I find my parameters have been more stable.
All my other zoas are fine, but this patch of Eagle eyes changes the red to green which sucks.

I understand zoas do this but will they go back to normal or is this my patch of zoas now.

Zoas will morph and my guess is that’s just how they grow, they naturally morph. From my experience I’ve seen more morphing in higher salinity but that’s just my experience. Not tested I don’t think. Anyhow, your zoas look like they need more light they look to be reaching rather than spreading across a rock!

Looks like a bacterial infection by a certain bacteria that make zoa glow green. Forgot what it’s called but saw it mentioned in a post on here the other day. I have fruit loops with green ans purple mouths now that glow under blue light because of it

They look fine to me other than the green. Mine have stayed this way for months now but they’re otherwise healthy so I’m not sure it’s anything you can do anything about
