i have a colony of eagle eye zoas that opened for a couple of days when I first got them, then closed up tight for two weeks. Mine finally opened when I put them almost right nest to my powerhead and as high in the tank as I could get them. That's absolutely counter to everything I've ever read or heard about zoas, but that worked for me. As I recall, I bought the colony from a shallow frag tank with metal halides over it. I can't remember about the flow, but I'd bet a dollar it was a igh flow spot of the tank they were in, too. I guess it's what this particular colony liked.

You go with whatever makes them happy. Every tank is different...lots of variables. Ph seems on the low side.

Greg took the words out of my mouth. Ph is low, and your zoas might like more or less flow or light than the books say they should. Are they opening up any more?

Yes PH is low but I tested it this morning so that might have been the reason why it was so low. It is usually between 8 and 8.2.

Yes more have opened. Almost all of them are open but I realized from this last picture that I lost a lot of them. Some just broke off and are staggered in my tank somewhere.
