Those look great What they called? Got frags?I love them. When I started in the hobby back in the 90’s everything was mostly green or orange with a minor amount of variation. Sure you had some red wellosyphilla, purple tipped elegance, etc. Zoas where either green dragon eyes or Texas trash. Took some time off during college. Picking back up in ‘06 you really started to see more colors especially with different zoa strains. In ‘08 while working for an aquarium service company I met a guy (who used to work at the same shop) that was doing zoas. I saw kedd’s red’s for the first time and my mind was blown lol. I love them because they are, for the most part, pretty forgiving. Certainly more-so than acros. They also come in pretty every color imaginable- you can’t be that.
The name game sucks, I’m not gonna mince words. Like all hobbies there’s exploitive people out there. That didn’t seem to come on strong until ‘11-‘15. The fact is there are some strains that command a higher price for various reasons and people that take care of them and share them with others deserve to be rewarded. It’s not always easy to grow these things.
My hands down favorite are black rainbows and they came from Mark at Ultimate Corals years back. Same family as mind tricks, el corazon/after burners, burning embers and a few others.
