Just make sure they're getting some light, the one on the bottom of the rock looks pretty bleached. They obviously don't a lot of light, but you get the idea

I agree, it's hard to tell if they are rare or not considering there are tons of species. Still, if you like the way they look, they are rare to you.

what kind of light do you have them under? they should regain color soon. right now they are bleached, probably due to insufficient light.

They are not bleached that's the color they are. They are a light pink pearl color they start out completely bite then turn the pearl color when they get bigger.

i'm pretty sure they will gain more color with better lighting. not too many "pearl" colored zoas out there.
