Most zoas are the same. T5 lighting is what I use on the tank with the zoas in it. There is no real problem caring for them. when you clean your glass that is basically what they eat so keeping your glass clean does make a difference. Always dip your corals before adding them because of pests. I usually float the coral in my sump and then I test both waters making sure the ph and sg is the same if not then I drip acclimate them, Then dip them with something like flatworm x and iodine or I found out the coral rx is better since it is more gentle on the coral.
