How fast do zoos grow?

How many "buttons" grow per week? Do they grow pretty quick?

Don't think you can classify a button per week to them but some grow faster than others. IME, duller colors grow faster The tri color zoos I have been selling are very fast growers but most other bright colored ones I have are slow. The browns ones grow fast too. I have some orange/green and all orange that have went from 5 to 15 polyps in about a year.

Really depends on your water and light. I have a friend that has some of the same stuff and I have faster growth. I have halides and more water volume though. When I first had my tank setup, I noticed a spike in growth at about the 6 month mark. Sort of a maturity issue I guess. Some tanks hit this at differnt times though. I had decent growth before the halides too though.
*180 gal Display, 100 gal basement sump, 33 gal refugium, 3x250 MH, 2x160 VHO actinics, zoos, some softies, LPS & lots of acros and other SPS.
*100 gal prop tank plumbed into main system w/ 2x96 PC lights and 1x150 MH,
