Looking after zoas

Hi all, today I got a zoa frag it has 5-6 heads. Just wondering whats the best way to keep these guys. At the moment it's quite high on the rock it also has good flow around it. Many thanks

Give them the higher flow you can until they start to retract (close).

Watch params for Ca,Mg and KH, in-range and stability is the key. 5-6 headed zoa frag will spread slowly.

This depends on the morph. I have morphs that grow so fast they're like a weed and others that grow super slow. Mine enjoy good light an low-moderate flow.
