Seeing a thread on zoas I bought 5 different frags with about 10-15 polyps each
Placing them on the bottom they seam to fill with sand and seam irritated , all the polyps don't open ,
Should I place them higher or try blowing the sand out frequently ?

Sometimes they take a few days to fully open You could try moving them up onto a rock, ime they like some flow but not a lot.

When buying zoas as a 10 polyp frag do they multiply and spread fast ?
I would like to find something to spread and cover the majority of my rocks .

Yes Zoas spread fast. You might consider Xenia as well they're fast growers too.

This is good news because that's what I want to happen in my tank, I went to the lrs on my lunch hr yesterday and it seems the more polyps I buy together the cheaper they are? Here's some pics. The first pics price seemed reasonable, 10-15 polyp frags for $15, the second pics is a small colony of maybe 50-75 polyps for $50 and the last pic is a colony of way more than 100 polyps and multi colored too for $100.

That seams to be a lot of new corals for a new tank .
I would hate to hear everything dying cause of it being so soon and immature of a system
