First Zoa Colony

So last weekend I bought my first zoanthid colony and love it. My only question is, some of them have remained closed since I bought them, some have closed for several days then opened again, and some have closed a few days ago and never reopened. Not really sure if this is normal or not. The closed polyps look healthy to me.
