+1 The polyps just aren't completely extended.

I would also give it a little more room on your frag rack, they have some pretty long sweepers.

You ain't just whistling dixie! Those tentacles can reach 8 to 12 inches as I have read. Anything within reach can and most likely will get stung without any hesitation. Some folks have said they haven't had any problems. I had the unfortunate experience of losing one of my favorite zoas.

The sweepers on my frag are in the neighborhood of 3-4", not the longest LPS sweeper that I've seen, but no where near a foot long. If you're watching, you can see for yourself once its added and figure out if it needs more space. My guess is that a small frag wouldn't get any sweepers that are too long, but there is certainly a risk. It's always a gamble on LPS with sweepers in a nano tank, but generally things seem to work out.
