My only two big colonies. They’re old but cheap and I love them.

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!
Love my Utter Cayos!!

Absolutely gorgeous.
Thanks! Been working on the photography skills too. I picked up an inexpensive SLR and some decent lenses so I can custom set the white balance and turn the AI light to a specific spectrum to match. Makes it so much easier!
