    I've seen numerous threads were individuals post of pictures of their favorite single polyp or their most expensive single polyp, and I've contributed to a number of those as well. And of course we always have the "Eye Candy" thread, but I also really enjoy the look of a tank with large zoa colonies grown out. I currently have several in my tank that are spreading out quite nicely with dozens of polyps; Copper Rings, Tubb's Blue, a mixed colony of Pink Panthers and Mint Chocolate Chip, and a paly colony. I'll post up some pictures here in a bit, but in the mean time, lets see your pictures of your favorite colony or colonies (must be over two dozen polyps in the picture).

    Lets try to stick to grown in colony shots with 2 dozen or so polyps, NO frag plugs, frag discs, or egg crate showing PLEASE. Plug shots can go in the eye candy thread (here: https://www.reef2reef.com/forums/zoa-discussion-club-zoa/11-eye-candy-zoas-palys.html), lets try and keep this one to the grown in colony look. Also, please avoid references to trading or selling in the thread. Thanks all, now lets see some colonies!

    Thanks, I really like that colony the way it has grown in, too. Unfortunately that darn aiptasia was there when I got the frag but didn't notice it til it was in its permanent home.

    Plan to place all my colonies on the rocks this weekend and get that look all over...

    My only "colony" of zoas, but they are also my favorite... old school, I know. I'm afraid to take it off my rack, since any zoas I put on my rocks tend to slowly disappear :(

    Thanks. They actually look a lot better than that in person. I can't seem to get a pic that doesn't wash them out.

    Whoa! Some gorgeous eye candy going on here we can't be letting this die out - keep the pictures coming folks!

    All Delight those baby's breath are sweet, but are they a paly/zoa?

    SDguy those Alien Eyes are nice and bright!

    Nano, mfinn, and moto nice colonies as well.

    Mimic love the Purple Death against the Orange plate backdrop! Very cool.

    Shot of my Copper-Rings colony just to keep the momentum moving:

    This one shows the two Galaxy PEs that migrated into the middle of the colony;

    Alien eyes and Dragon eyes are the same zoa; two different names.

    DB nice colonies dude! Love the 2nd one and the Cats Eyes - you need to reload your first picture though.

    Here's two of my favorites to have in colonies:
    Black eyed peas and Ring of fires

    Also awesome blossoms, although my colony isn't huge just yet.
