Hello. I am new to the forum. I found this growing on my SUNY D’s and my Halley Berry’s. It’s brown and stringy. On the Halle berrys it just started, on the sunny d’s it’s been going on for a few weeks.
my water parameters have been.
pH has been steady at 7.2

Hey, everyone! I participated in the zoanthids.com live sale and my order arrived today! This is my second order of coral, my first was two toadstools which are happy in my display tank. I'm going to layout how I handled the order and I was hoping to get advice, kudos, and constructive...
Ok so I've got several zoa frags with heads getting super, super small. they aren't melting or dying but the heads are maybe 1/2 to 1/3 the size they were months ago. I have recently had a cyan outbreak but they were shrinking in size before this. Any ideas what the problem could be?
For the past 6-7 weeks my zoas have not been opening fully, have their skirts pulled back, and are discolored.

Going to pick up some zoa from a LFS today. Wondering about pricing. He’s asking 35$/head for Illuminati, 25$/15 heads for white ding dangs, 25$ for two heads of JF crybaby’s. Just wanna know if these are decent prices. NOTE, this is a place in Nashville. I am from an area with NO LFS and no...
I added my first coral to my tank on Monday, a single Rasta Zoa polyp. I did a coral dip using Coral RX Pro and Seachem Reef Dip.
Over the last couple of days I’ve noticed something that appears to be growing out from the base of the polyp.
Any ideas what this can be?
Hi there! Picked up these zoas a week or two ago, they opened up right away when putting them in my tank and they’ve seemed to have been doing fine, I noticed today they’re dulling out. They used to be a bright green around the edges the largest head still has some trace of the original colors...
I just crushed a zoa in my DT, I know the answer to this but need to hear it from someone else. Will this nuke my tank? The innards went all over the tank but I’m running carbon and have a protein skimmer. It was a single head of rainbow incinerators. @footgal because duh
Hi all, on my way out of the house i noticed that the base of one of my zoa’s is turning white and sort of fluffy, i haven’t tested today and am out of the house but as of 4 days ago the params were:
This is the oldest coral in the tank...
So I’ve slowly collected a bunch of zoa, most of which I’m assuming are low end. I just wanted to post them all so people could give me a decent idea of where they land in terms of rarity. Only rare thing I have are CB white zombies.

I’ve had these small zoas for a couple of weeks in my new tank. They’ve been dipped with “the dip” by fauna marin and then inserted in the aquarium. After a day, they started thriving and some polyps doubled already in size. However, its been a few days since many polyps haven’t...
I have several zoa frags whose heads are getting smaller. They aren’t melting and they’re still reproducing fine they’re just smaller. If they’re ok I don’t see it being an issue I like my polyps to be relatively the same size anyway. The zoa in question are my vamps in drag, purple monsters...
Need some help id’ing zoas. I got both these dudes for 5$ and don’t know what they are. I’d needed on the second pic are the blue and orange with the yellow mouth. Super deep in my biocube so hard to get pictures lol.
@footgal because, well duh.
This pic sucks I know. But if anyone can even get me close I’d appreciate it. Another 5$ frag I picked up. It’s the super orange small head in the middle. It’s not fire and ice it’s center is almost completely a radioactive orange with a dark blue skirt.
I’m curious on what’s wrong with some zoas in my tank. I’ve bought a few different zoa frags. One of them has spread out a good bit. The others open up well and look fine for 2-3 days to a week. Then they start closing up for no reason that I can find and eventually end up shrinking and staying...
HI. I am, by every definition of the word, a total noob. I've had my first ever salt tank running for a month now and today I bought my first ever corals, 3 zoa frags from my LFS. I brought em home, did my daily water change, and then prepared to dip them. I put on nitrile gloves, a KN95 mask...
Strategically designing your zoa garden isn’t talked about enough.
Starting my zoa garden was overwhelming because of the amount of color combos and variations out there, and ihad no idea how to go about picking zoas or what would look good together. This technique of applying color theory to...
Hey everyone, I’m not a super zoa grower but I do keep tabs on the latest prices online, eBay, locally, R2R, etc. However sometimes I get behind with more important things so I’d like some second opinions!
I recently purchased a wild zoa ‘mini colony’, if you will from a high end zoa guy. He...
