    wondering what this could be, bought this zoa frag about a year ago and thought it was just a piece of liverock but then it started to grow bigger than the plug and started getting a smooth glassy reflection to it, feels very hard to the touch and just recently it started having polyps extend

    Hey folks, Strangest thing happened to me today. I was at the LFS and I found this pretty zoa rock. At the LFS, it was the brightest orange I've ever seen in a zoa. Really pretty and unique. The interior and exterior section of the polyp was orange. I buy it and get it back to work for...

    Got some frag plugs around a week ago, my Hammer is looking nice and healthy. My Zoanthid coral however is looking a little odd, it has like some hanging brown spots in the center and off to the side, I'm not sure if it's algae, dead spots, or something fungal? What's your guy's take?

    So I'm getting close to buying my first piece of coral and I'm looking at getting a zoa frag. My tank is two months old and doing great the water is testing fine I plan on getting it next month. Do I even need to wait till next month if my water is stable? Also there are still a couple more fish...

    So I have recently been attempting to get more coral propagation in my tank. Parameters are good.... I have been doing a bit of research, and think maybe "dirty" rock might be an issue? I have fine sand in the tank, which dusts up on the rocks pretty often. Could this detritus limit coral...

    I have a 30 gallon tank I want to house some Zoanthids in. I need help with the lighting. Would this be sufficient?: Coral life 50/50 fluorescent lamp. (24in) I am in the early stages of research so I'm still struggling with the lighting and all the terminology.

    Hi all, I've been doing a lot of reading lately about palys and zoas and their toxicity (palytoxin). I started in this hobby about 1.5 yrs ago with a specific goal to help my children learn about and become excited in the marine ecosystem and marine biology. I have two boys, 4yrs and 7yrs...

  10. "Soft" corals
    One of these Zoa's came as a hitchhiker on another Zoa frag some time back and now I have a nice colony of them. So I guess it is time to ID them. The eyes are a tangerine color with a much darker surrounding. On some polyps the dark surrounding has blue patches, but never fully circling the...
  11. "Soft" corals
    Started our first zoa and it now has this strange purplish/white growth coming up from the bottom and it seems to be taking over the zoa. Any idea what it is? See attached photo.

    I bought a small rasta zoa frag at the LFS yesterday and today notice what looks like a small tube anemone (rather long tentacles, can't quite tell where they're coming from - the site won't let me upload a photo to my gallery). I just want to ask whether or not that could be harmful to my...

  14. "Soft" corals
    Been a while since I made a thread, so lets change that with a legit problem I have. I have been a dabbling in reef tanks for a few years now, and naturally I tried my hand at keeping Zoa's and getting them to grow like wildfire as they are so famous for. But here is my problem... they do the...

    I noticed that some Of the polyps on my zoanthid have like neon green centers while others do not. How come? Are the green ones super healthy or something? Also- I asked this in a previous thread but just want to verify- the zoa will eventually grow this plug and onto my rock correct?

    I found this (large) bivalve in an amazing zoa colony. Is it reef safe? Should it be removed? The colony is currently being dipped in coralrx- will that kill the bivalve and require it's removal? (So it doesn't rot)

    I don't what it is, but after six months(tank age) my zoas are finally growing. Could be the reduced water changes I'm not sure. Maybe it's the radions. Who knows but I don't care! Finally!
