My local fish store sells large zoa colonies of like 45-75 for 20-30 very cheap and another one I go to sells 3-4 heads for 30$ so there's always a huge price variation.

Best thing I've found about zoas is the majority of the high priced ones you can get almost identical colors from another type just with a different name..imo your getting scammed if you end up paying the $10-$15 a head that some places ask for

Here are som of my recent zoa acquisitions:

Eagle eyes ($15 at Atlantic Sea Farms - Atlantic Sea Farms featuring ricordia, zoanthids, palyothoa, LPS, SPS.):

Supposedly "snake" zoas. I bought these blind from satwaterfish.com for I think $15. They flouresce green under my blues, but otherwise I think they're kind of ugly:

$10 (+ buy 3 get one free from Aquatic Obsession in Manassas, VA)

Another $10 (+ buy 3 get one free from Aquatic Obsession.) It's pretty much closed up in this pic because I just moved it and epoxied it in place from having fallen:

It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labelling.
