Help - new zoas are tiny

Hi All!
Picked up some zoas (SpongeBob, Space Chaos, fruit loops, cb rainbow infusions, pink diamonds) and when I got them home I noticed that they are very very tiny and dont look real good. Is there anything I can do to get them bigger quick before they disappear? I have had them for 48 hours and put them into a tank that has healthy zoas growing in it - on the sandbed.
Cheers! Mark

Just let them be. I had a frag so that a few days after I got it. They were super small for about 48 hrs and then slowly came back. They are growing well now. I wouldn’t worry too much. Leave them alone and they should be ok b

I looked in the tank and the tiny polyps had asterina stars on them so I moved the frags to another one of my systems. Granted this was not the issue that made them small but the stars were not helping.
