I bought some beautiful Bam Bam Zoas a few weeks back. They lit up my tank for about 2 weeks, then closed up and I have yet to be able to get them to open back up. I have a standard 75 gallon tank, they are about midway in the tank. I run my chinese black light at 80% blue and 20% white (whites go off after about 6-8 hours). I feed phyto every other day, reef roids every 3-4 days. My nitrates are between 5-10, salinity 1.024, temps are about 76-77.
Advice welcomed!

Moderate light and water flow and add iodine to water along with blowing them gently with a turkey baster
 

Would you love to have a super cool anemone? (these are the best)
