Did you edit the picture? Purple monsters are purple center and a green outer ring.
I didn't take the picture, it's the one from the page I bought it from. Here they are in my QT tank.

Rastas are probably my number 1, great color, fast growers, tough as nails and an actual affordable coral in a hobby that is getting more and more expensive.

little shop of horrors are probably my favorite if budget isn’t a factor, similar colors but in a very unique pattern. My only gripe is they grow slow and polyps are on the smaller side.

I love my Miami vice in full blues, but I tend to run my lights on the white side of the spectrum and they get lost in the coralline algae. Something I’ve learned the hard way when shopping for Zoas online.

I like them all. I just wish they would stop with the "custom" names. Call them what the accepted name in the trade is and be done.
I disagree though, naming is super useful for being able to categorize and thus be able to easily find. If I want to find a zoa that I know is named I can easily search online to find a seller, I can say the opposite is true when I try to hunt down really pretty un-named zoas.

Its a lot easier to post that you are looking for a GMK oppose to saying "looking for zoa with green/yellow stripped skirt with orange body with 'M' pattern black". This argument has always come across as older hobbiest just being upset that coral is more expensive now. Which is a fair thing to be upset about, but I personally believe internet/social media presence has made a much larger impact on pricing as the hobby is just so much bigger now thus huge demand for the really pretty stuff.

Also weren't Utter Chaos super expensive once upon a time? I bet LSOH, GMK and other $100pp zoas will all follow the same path given the time assuming they aren't known melters. Anything that grows well will just has a continuously increasing supply.
