Did the person who gave them to you have the same lighting? If not it could just be the lighting change. Whenever I have lost zoos they have always closed up and dissappeared. I have some greens right now that have turned to a darker green when I switched bulbs.

they should do OK under PCs but will probably not "color up" to thier full potential. try moving them closer to the lights and see what happens.

OK cool thanks alot I will try that I was thinking about moving them into a 15 gallon and putting the pc on there since I am upgrading to a bigger tank I am wondering if the lighting would be to much in such a small tank?
