    Most of the polyps are opening on my zoanthid but it looks a little different than photos I’ve seen of them online. Just wanna make sure they’re healthy. I’ve had them for about 2 months.

    Will different Zoanthids share Zooxanthellae?

    So my Maui Wowie Zoanthids are touching my Everlasting Gobstopper Zoanthids, the Maui’s are blue/greenish and the Gobstopper are pink. I noticed that the newest Maui Polyp has hints of pink, it looks a lot more pink in person, but if you look at the picture, you can see there’s quite a...

    Zoa vomit

    Hi, recently i bought a kessil light and everything has been growing like a dream but today after a water change my oldest zoanthid polyps were vomiting their zooxanthellae. These zoanthids everyday get better and better coloration. I suspect its from too much light. Is this normal? Should i...

    Alabama Georgia Tennessee TONS of Various Zoas, Favia, Chalices, etc! WYSIWYG!

    I definitely went a little overboard during the Winterfest sale from Zoanthids.com and over the 10-hour event picked up a TON of stuff. Like 50 pieces. LOL! My friend who runs our LFS was supposed to take a bunch for his shop but still hasn’t decided what he wants plus had his frag tank bust, so...

    Can Stressed Zoas Release Palytoxins?

    I'm a first time reefer, and yesterday I gave my first two zoa frags a 30 sec 3% hydrogen peroxide dip, which nuked the algae on the plugs, but they didn't seem to enjoy it very much, and are now, a day later, only about 2/3 opened back up. Also, last night, my clown fish mysteriously...

    New Tank Nutrients and Corals

    Im running into a contradiction with my new tank. It's been up since June. I'm using a skimmer, a fuge, and filter socks. My filtration has done a great job of exporting nutrients, too good in fact. Both phosphate and nitrate are 0. They are definitely not truly 0 as I do have some algae, but I...

    I think this is a Zoa? ID help

    So the attached image is a frag that a buddy of mine who runs an LFS gave me. In the store they were listed as "Yellow Brick Polyps" They seem like Zoa's with a few noticeable differences, mainly being how tall/long they extend, and the length of the lashes. I'm just wondering if anyone has...

    Unknown mass spreading on zoas

    I am relatively new to the reef tank hobby and have a problem with some zoanthid corals. There is a solid brown/purple mass spreading over the coral and covering polyps, it was relatively slow spreading to begin with but has started to spread faster, covering more and more of the coral. I have...

    ZOA what do they prefer most(poll)

    I just thought I would start a thread to see what everyone is doing as far as care for Zoas/Palys, and see what others have found they like best. Please vote and share your comments below. I have always heard Zoas love MH but have never tried them under that type of lighting.

    Radioactive Dragon Eye or Gorilla Nipz?

    Recently was told these are Gorilla Nipz, looking at the website I ordered them from they have Radioactives (they were sold to me as Spring Zoanthids). (Above: my photo) (Their advertisement of Radioactives) (What I bought them as)

    are our zoanthids melting? I just got some zoanthids this last weekend and more than half of it is opened but I see a little spot where there’s nothing really there. If it’s melting what should I do?
