I have some fruit loop zoas but mine are not that brightly colored. I also believe those have been touched up to make them brighter.

+1... These are more than likely not to be real and there are always someone trying to sell something diffferent than what they have to make a sale... Just be careful when purchasing...

I'd say most of them aren't. The "Eye of Jupiter" looks a little "enhanced", and the "Lemon/Lime" ones look like someone bumped up the yellows... but for the most part they look about right.

I have a friend that sells frags to stores. When he puts together "catalog" for sale he pays a photog to come and take his pics. The guy stages the whole thing. Like those food commercials. So the frag might be the real deal but a lot went into the pic. So unless you hold your frag under lights an inch from top of water, you will never get the same color. Although it is completly possible to touch these up to enhance for sale. Like a model on a mag cover. She is already pretty but still gets a touch up.

At first impression I thought no way. I am not too familiar with zoas but when I looked at all their sps it all looked like it was represented pretty accurately. Bige is probably right, its just the perfect picture, top down, best lighting color etc etc. I would be interested to see what it looks like in one of our tanks. If it looks half as nice as the picture, it could actually persuaded to buy zoas. Those are sweet!
