    Hi Tiger eye! Leave them alone, they are hardy and will survive. You already mentioned that they are growing. :)

    If they are the normal brownish zoanthids then they should survive the cycle no problem. They are very hardy organisms... (Pictured below are protopalys, not usually referred to as zoanthids)
