When you get up there with designer zoas, they seem to get more sensitive and grow slower. Sometimes a slight alk swing can make them melt away.

Scary when you spend a couple hundred pp and shipping and it just dies on you. I guess that can happen with anything though. The only way I'd ever get some is during a deep discount live sale WYSIWYG.

We've all done it, just matters if it is a zoa polyp or a rare acro.
But it is easy to see in our systems. In mine my amor of God zoas melted down to two polyps from 8, I think, and the common zoa and palys haven't skipped a beat. I'm actually pulling green palys off the back glass and pitching them during water changes.

In my humble opinion, zoas do better in large groups.

Thanks! They are amazing I love them. I'm hoping they end up taking over that rock they are on.

Here's a better picture I took last night using the photography Gel filters I'm testing with my iPhone 6s.

95% blue light 0%white LEDs and a yellow gel filter over the camera lens.


Sorry to hear about your zoas! Find some more!

That shot with the gel filter in combination with the blue lights really brings those pink zippers to life. Absolutely beautiful coloring.

I hope to find some more of those. They must be popular because the price is going up from what i paid a year or so ago.
