Gradual decline of a lot of things in the tank.  Needs more water changes.

so   I recently had green algae cover up 6 of 8 polyps. They stopped opening. to remedy this i found a suggestion to peroxide dip the frag. I scooped up some tank water, enough to cover the zoa, andd put the zoa into the container. I added H2O2 slowly until it started bubbling. i squirted the liquid around. then returned the frag to the tank. all of the algae disappeared. I am waiting for the zoa to either recover or not. one polyp has started to open.
wish me luck.

They will revive in time. Mine always did the same after a peroxide dip.
