    are they bleached or browned out? Bleached means they dumped their Zoox algae and you have nothing but a skeleton left. If the polyps are out, leave them for a week or so then slowly start moving them higher till they start coloring up. What kind of lights are then under?

    May want to check your parameters as well. I don't mess with SPS because there are a lot of variables. Did you contact the seller yet? If they came in bad then you should get new ones or at least let them know. Also, see what lighting the seller was using and what the parameters were. Try to mimic the other tank to get them thriving.

    Sounds like they just didnt ship well. Sps do not tolerate trates well though. Follow murfs advice and run with it. If you have pe then its just an acclimation phase
