l love them but I love all my Corals from LPS to SPS
I love the green palys! Gorgeous!A long while ago I got this fantastic Art Poster of a 100 Zoa's and Palys
That Post became my wish list.
It was my goal to get as many I could. I kept hunting and buying and adding Various Zoa's to my tank.
Some would fade away almost instanltly, other took off and then slowly vanished.
After many attempts I had no luck keeping any happy.... so I gave up.
My favorites were the Blue Hornets and Rasta Zonathids.
The Pinwheel Zoa Patch I had was also nice.
The biggest mistake I made decades ago was getting One Green Paly.
They do look nice......
But....I can't get rid of them and they are slowly taking over every spare space in the tank (even the Glass bottom)
Mango Coolers are one of my favorites as well. Photos just don't do them justice, they are truly blaze orange!For my first year of reefing I was terrified of zoanthids. Stories of palytoxin made them a hard no for my tank. And that might not have been a bad thing. I fought my first tank regularly, having to pull rocks several times to scrub bryopsis and other invasive things. Kenya trees and xenia were really a better idea.
Nearly two years in and with a new tank I've learned a lot and had a change of heart! I now have four different zoas in my tank. I love the pop of color, the relative hardiness, and the way they grow. They've turned into one of the most eye catching features in my tank.
Right now I have JF Mango Coolers, King Midas, Purple Hearted Emeralds, and WWC Superstars. My favorite by a landslide are the JF Mango Coolers. I can see those things from across the room under blues but they look beautiful in all kinds of light. Not just my favorite zoa but possibly one of my favorite corals in my tank.
Wish the picture really did the color justice.
Can’t forget the newest and hottest high end zoa. Predator’s!! Now available and on sale for $200pp $100 off!
Thank you so much! I definitely have a collection. Please hit me up on the predators they are really hardy and honestly speckled Kraks can be a little finicky in my experiencesLove em camaro, you have the sickest stuff. Just getting into some higher end zoas, have speckled kraks on the way to test the waters before i buy the predators though, but man yours look gorgeous
ugh really, i hope they do fine. not concerned too much i got em at a steal but wanted to get them as there isnt much information on zoas and species and how hard each species specifically may be. Could be like acros too where some tenuis are just way easier than others, this IMO though. Just thought they had the same look as gmk and predator so took the shot on emThank you so much!

this would be helpful in my new thread as well, which certain species are more deadly than the others. Obviously palys seem to be worse but what about the exact species.I'm debating adding zoas to my first ever tank (WB Cube 20) but I am apprehensive about having potentially toxic coral in my tank (and home)
