Free zoas!

So there's a guy on cl who is giving away nicely sized zoas and polys. What should I look out for when picking them out of his tank?

Nudis will look like slugs and aiptasia is an anemone so just avoid those. You can google them and get a ton of pics but nudis have 1000s of variants just depends on there diet.

I'd make sure to dip them before adding them to your tank
