    Marius is correct, also ensure your water parameters are correct.

    Consider feeding them. You will be able to see than some actually "take" foods, reacting and closing upon feeding.

    On a slightly different note, I've got two areas of GSP on opposite sides of my tank that are spreading like crazy, how do I stop it? Remove the rocks or put something else in the way? ie. Zoas?

    Chop some GSP away, pull it off rock and find someone who would like some.

    They will take over the zoas. Put a rock next to it , let it grow on the rocks and sell off. Other than that it is not to easy to stop them growing. You can also place the rock against the back glass or overflow and let it grow there.
