This is my first zoa colony. They look like rust under full daylight but have a beautiful emerald center under the acentics. Only had a day so they are still opening.
One question: Are they supposed to have a sugar/sand like coating? As it comes off they are opening. What is this stuff?

They are button polyps. I thought they were still in the zoa family?

ok just wanted to make sure you knew the difference if you like zoes be careful putting buttons next to them they will take over.

Thanks everyone. Many are still closed but the sand stuff is thinning so expect all to be open soon.
