Zoa

I bought some Xenia today at my lfs and there were all kinds of hitchhikers. There were several pods, a pink stomatella snail, and a single polyp of what I believe I be a zoa. I don't want it to float around the tank, so should I just sit in on a small rock in a tub an wait for it to attach?

Not sure if it would attach like that. I'd glue it to some rubble

Depending on its size I've had success putting ruble in a double shot glass and then placing the coral in the glass. That way the coral can be in your tank but the glass walls protect it from the current. I guess a mason jar would work too if that's a better size

I think I'll try that. How long should it take to attach itself to the rubble?

Mine took after two days however I left it in the glass for about 4. It all depends on the scenario I guess. I like glasses that don't have writing and are clear. Often you can see if its foot/base has attached.

Thanks! I have in a plain, clear glass about the size of a shot glass by my other zoas.
