For me it has to be the TSA 'Warp Drives' (though I am still unsure if these are technically the same as "stiggy marleys')

For those who know me in the hobby, I am a hardcore SPS collector going back well over a decade. But for whatever reason, I have a lot of GMK and RR Pink Diamonds growing like weeds in one my grow out tanks.

Thank you. That is about 25% of my collection.Same here. Got 4 polyps, doubled in 6 weeks, then melted. But, they were nice for a while. There are many different ones out there, certainly for less.
Yes, they were beautiful for sure! Especially the one I had in lower Light.

I’d give some of those weeds a loving home haha! Some people claim to have issues with them melting, but man, those things really took off for you!

I just LOVE zoas, but I don't love them all! Matter of fact some zoanthids I just loathe! We're going to continue talking zoanthids today and we would love to have your input on this topic!

1. Is the Grand Master Krakatoa Zoa the best zoanthid of all time? If not then what is?

2. What is the WORST zoanthid to have in your reef and why is that?

The worst has to be Pandoras. They are a plague.

I really like my Rastas, but slow growing compared to my other zoas. The super sunflower is really growing on me, it currently has 9 polyps. I haven’t added a zoa that I dislike (yet)

My rastas are the opposite. Something going in right direction for now. Emphasize. For now.
