I know how difficult it is for zoas to be IDed, especially when it's us who photographs them improperly. But, I bought this zoa last year, was waiting for some coloration to happen, and here it's stayed this color...not like what was sold to be as. A zoa is a zoa, but would love to know what kind it is. I bought it from Pacific East.

First photo is with the regular lights on it...the other I added flash (which showed a bit more color). Sorry for the poor photos. For the record, I won't say what names I have over here...for I don't know which it could be anyway...lol. I saved three photos of zoas, only one zoa survived (my fault in lapse of water changing).

Anyway, lemme know your thoughts.

Ok ok...it may help you guys anyway with the few names I have. I have Green Eye Zoas, Periwinkle Zoas and Pluto Zoas...none looks like this. Well, the green eye zoas kinda...but there's no green eye at all. I don't think a zoanthid can literally change color from shipping to getting in my tank. These zoas been this color since I got them.

Here's a few photos that was given to me, all in order as what I wrote above.
