This really seems dependent on the tank, so I'm curious, in your tank, which zoas grow fast and which grow slow?

For mine:
Fast: scrambled eggs (prolific!), yodas, alien inferno, pandoras, punk rock girl, halle berry
Slow: butt munchers (literally 1 polyp in 9 months!), mango fusion, blondies, fruit loops

I also have a group that grew super fast initially and then slowed significantly: rastas, radioactive dragon eyes, bloodsuckers

The rest of them I consider in the medium range: cats eyes, spit fire, god of war revolution, candy apple red, sunny d

For me my fastest growers have been mandarins, fire and ice, and some green paly (that i dont know the name of). I don't have a huge selection of zoas, I only have about a dozen different types, and some of those are very recent additions. My rastas have gone from 3 to 12 polyps and my utter chaos has only gone from 3 to 5 polyps in the 4 months I have had them.

For me, my spiderman zoas and watermelon zoas grow slowly, but my captain jerks and nuclear death palys grow belligerently fast! I also have a fast growing zoa but I can't remember the name. Maybe gold dust zoas? I don't know....

Pandora’s and Mohawks.
But once my singles start popping heads they usually grow pretty steady.
Solar flair made a baby and then it seems like the next day I had two babies!

If I leave a plug with Zoa flesh in the tank it will grow back. I’ve had more zoas come back from the dead than I can count :D

Super fast: Fake chili and pink stardust, to the point that I almost can't give them away locally
I wish you were local. I've been looking Fake Lime Chilis but no one around here, that I know of, has them.

For me it's been laser lemons.

if we include palys then Captain Jerks are crazy fast growers.

My fastest have been everlasting gobstoppers, blue tubbs and of course, the plain old green palys.

I was trying to keep everything together as a zoa garden, but some were just overrunning the others so I had to start moving them around. Until I did this, my slowest were the utter chaos, radioactive dragon eyes and rastas. Once I moved them higher and by themselves they finally took off.

Just 2 out of several colonies, excuse the bad photos, had to work with what I could find on recent pictures and I don't exactly put in an effort with these anymore lol

Everyone told me not to get Xenia and GSP too - the Xenia melt in our tank and the GSP hasn't left it's rock. I'd like something to run rampant in our 125.

Xenia never grew for me that well either. Make sure they are on an island if you do it.
