I was told these were wild, unseen, and unlabeled. Testing that pre-purchase theory to see if it holds up now that I dropped top dollar for them. The most gold zoas I’ve ever seen. I will be selling a couple polyps at some point also. (First 5 photos were just before lights out, more white than blue) the other pics are closer to what they actually look like. Like I said, the most gold I’ve ever seen.

May I ask how much you paid for them?
I’m afraid to say, more than my 2+ headed grail lol ;Greedy;Muted;Blackeye the guy I got it from says “ it says NFS right there” and I said, “yeah but everything’s got a price” back and forth and he said, “If it says NFS $$$$+ and its yours" and i said "this one too?" then he told me "yeah" then i asked a bunch of questions and well i couldn't resist.

I’m thinking of some names if you guys wanna throw in some suggs. (suggestions lol). im thinking ~TKL Liquid Gold Palys~ or ~TKL Hog Rider Palys~ or ~TKL Hob-Goblin Palys~ or even like ~TKL Corn Pop Palys~. Idk those are the best I could get. If it’s already not named. I definitely wanna get these out to you guys once it grows some more. It’s on that good ole actual reef rock rn and it’d be a mess to frag atm. They grow super clean too per the photos. Wild frag

Hopefully @footgal has some insight. I know she really loves her zoas. Maybe I got ripped off. I trust the guy but maybe he didn’t know, which is unlikely being that he handles a good portion of the high end zoas. NONETHELESS I’d like to know what I’ve got before I go flaunting around about it.

p.s. ~I’m clearly super biased lol~

Oof those were not cheap lol
Maybe I’m hoping it will be worth it. I’ve seen some high end stuff like the SBB zoas he’s got up there but I’ve never seen them this gold. I’m also not super well versed in zoas. Torches are more my forte. When I do end up selling some I’m gonna start low and see how it goes. Because honestly $2,000+ for any coral is ridiculous. Prices are too high in these interesting times

Beautiful zoa! Here’s a “speckled Krak” from Savage reef- thoughts? Note the white/blue the mouth as well.

Those look almost identical! I’ll get some more pictures tomorrow but the ones in this photo appear to be a solid scrumptious gold, I think the ones I have, have more green polyps. Not sure honestly now I think that’s almost it. Some sort of speckled krak variation.

Can you get a pic with whites too? I have speckled kraks but they’re no where near this yellow, more orange, but very similar patterns. I’ll get a pic of them today when lights on and post it for a comparison

I think the closest yet are the speckled kraks, and the gold maul zoas. I’ll try and see when I feel comfortable fragging but the hype seems to provide pressure to hurry that process up lol ;Nailbiting;Nailbiting;Nailbiting

Alright everyone, I took some more photos hopefully these help. Just yeeted (yote) my phone into the water for a couple. So I’ve got no filter (under whites), no filter, then with filter. I tend to stay away from the filtered ones as ‘this is how it looks’ but genuinely it’s brighter than the filter pics. Torches I think are more exaggerated with the filter on. These are pretty on point. I also have a no filter torch pick so you guys can compare. I look forward to potential selling ;Snaphappyo_O
