Zoanthid Help

I have 2 groups of zoas that have only been partially open for about a month. One group is orange, the others I call watermelon (green and pink). They did very will in their current location; they were fully open and spreading like crazy. Then i noticed they stopped opening fully. Water chemistry is perfect. I've tried changing lighting and flow, but I still cant get them to open. All my other corals are healthy. Any ideas?

Here's the link to my specs:

Have you tried looking closely for any predators, especially after lights-out? With a magnifying glass, if necessary.
Keep an eye out for nudibranchs camouflaged in the colonies (and/or little spirals of eggs on the sides of polyps), or other zoanthid predators, like 'sea spiders' and sundial snails.
