Can anyone ID these Zoa’s for me?
and the two mushrooms if you happen to know.
Thanks for the feedback!

Got a few right. 1 - sweet tooth, 2- armor of god, 4 - lunar eclipse.
Haven’t figured out the orange looking one, left side of 2.
3 - is more of a yellow so I’m thinking it’s a Parahna zoa.
5 - is a POTO exosphere

I got them in a trade from someone who did. Traded hammer corals for it.
Does it have a pink skirt? From the pictures it doesn’t look like it. And those haven’t been around long enough for someone to grow a colony out like that.

it may be something close or similar but probably not POTOs exosphere.

and if you got them from a guy and you already knew the names I don’t understand you asking.

you could at least tell the people who took the time to answer thank you.

good luck.

Because if you make your rounds on the Saturday’s to your local lfs like most people do in the hobby here in NY, they all get from the same vendor. Some stores get back quicker from the airport, so if you’re from NY, you should start at NYRA first (queens), pop corals after (Brooklyn) and then POTO since you have to cross the bridge. Shout out to Salgado for his prices, but traveling to the Bronx kills me lol, but good thing they deliver. NYRA is selling them as CHIQUTA for $35 a polyp, didn’t see them at John’s in Brooklyn and POTO has a name, so he can bang you upside your head and you feel ok about it. I took a picture of the colony, but traded for 15-20 polyps in what I thought was an even trade of $200 in branching hammers. It’s not the first time here that I ask if anyone has the real name of a coral before it gets its own name by someone and Jack’s up the price because of who they are or due to their overhead. I bought a torch in what was supposed to be a HG from POTO and was crucified for trying to sell a couple heads of it here. If you had said it was Johnny’s bananas and zoanthids.com, WWC or any other reputable site had it as that, I’d go with Johnny’s Banana’s. So again, when I ask for the name of something it’s because I’d just rather go with what it actually is and not a made up name like people suggested I do... But since you can’t provide that, POTO beats out New York Reef Aquatics on this one! Thanks for the input!

And the dang thing won’t open up fully and is probably dying, but that’s what happens when you buy or trade with someone who got it right out of a styrofoam box.

If you just got it give it time. Zoas are pretty resilient. And like all other corals they take time to adjust to a tank.

Im hoping they open up so I can trade half for zoas I don’t have. Have to fill a few gaps on my tree.
