Here's my old colony...




sadly to say...it has since melted away down to 2 polyps. Don't ask me why. no zoa pox. no predators. no nothing. and then all of a sudden stopped dieing and theres 2 left. I also have 1 frag with 4 polyps and 1 frag with 2 polyps. It hurts sooo bad to look back at these pictures. AHHHHH!!! No clue why they melted. Everything else including all my other zoanthids were and still are perfect.

and my fav picture ever...
The guy who took it says it was under 50/50 pc's and no photo editing. He's a professional photographer so I believe him.

He's a pro and can't get them in focus? hehe sorry I just had to be a butt.

Nice coloring on them though

Wish I could give you some background on these but I can't. They are a colony belonging to a friend who promised me a frag when he decides to frag them. Waiting patiently. :squigglemouth:



The biggest polyps are dime sized.

These are very slow growers. Mine will catch food once in a while but have a very hard time holding onto it.
A pic of my colony from a while back.


Pic of a frag my friend got from me recently.
