    Any info on flow and light for growth and best color. And if anyone has any info on growth rate that'd be great info aswell.

    Everyone forgive my photography skills. This guy is hard to truly capture colors on. But the big r corals photo is close to what it is in person. The skirt is incredible with confetti like coloration. Reminds of a very high end scoly in paly form truely unique.

    Yeah i seen that but im looking for more input. As with everything the more data data points you input the more accurate your end value will be.

    After having this for a few months, I was wondering if you had any new info on it? Is it a fast or slow grower? How many heads do you have on your colony now? Noticed feeding or any water parameters that it seems to do better in?

    After having this paly for a few months have you figured out any new info about it? Is it a fast/slow grower? How many heads are on your colony now? Is it really finicky and closes randomly or pretty well tempered and always open? How big is the head size? Do you have any new pics?

    Sorry for the barrage of questions, There’s just nowhere to find any of this info and you’re probably one of a very few number of people who can answer these questions. Thank you in advance!!!

    I have one that's pretty similar, can never get the colors right on a pic though. Cool polyp, doesn't seem to grow very fast.

    Sorry for the late response the colony now has 3 heads small for what they should be they seem to always be open but definitely a slow grower thus the price they are commanding now. I seen two polyps listed today for 325. I think light is the biggest factor for these guys mine are flat to the rock no exstention and i cant figure out why. By far the most difficult paly ive ever kept.

    Usually flat to the rocks mean their under high lighting. That's based on polyps that are extended due to low lighting. That's just my experience

    Low light or high light it does the same thing thus the confusion on what really makes it happy.

    Alk9.3
    calcium 450
    Nitrates between 0-5
    Phosphate undetectable
    Temp 78.5
    Salinity 1.025
    Running hydra 52s on ab+ program

    I think i have finally found a spot that the bozos like they are fully open all the time and no so flat. Still slightly flat but much improved.

    I have bozos, they took a while to get going but now produce polyps like crazy. My mini colony produced 2-3 frags a month for the last 3 months. I sell them for around $200/each but usually give 2 polyps or one with several babies.

    It's definitely rare enough still that its worth $300PP.. It will take a while to come down in price too, so if you sell or trade zoas alot its a solid buy even at $300PP.. I'm actually upping my price due to demand. Lol
