Did you get anything from A Reef Creation (ARC)?  Everything I have gotten from them has been super healthy.  All their frags spend time in a grow out tank so they aren't fresh cut.  I notice the difference in growth between fresh cut and not fresh cut.

That is where I got the frag of Rainbow Incinerators. They had some awesome frags!

 

And now for the June FTS:

Awesome zoas! Careful with the nuclear greens...those are the super toxic ones. 

 

Man I need more zoas. Mine are all baby frags.

I like the concept of this tank. Can't wait to see it when your frags grow out more and fill up all the empty rock space.

Me too. I have always loved those shots of zoa gardens where they have completely covered the rock structure. Hopefully its just a matter of time... and maybe a few more frags along the way.

Its time for a new photo dump. A lot has happened since the last post. The pump on my filter died and had to be replaced. I have also gotten a few new zoas. Shortly after i picked up corals at Reefapalooza the blue and yellow zoas started showing signs of zoa pox. I moved them to another tank for treatment. So far none of the other zoas in the tank are showing any signs of the pox. Fingers crossed.

 

August FTS:

Great selection. The last ones look like possible Spiderman's or a close morph.

You have a great collection of zoas.  I have zoas and rics in my contest tank but have not managed to get colorful ones like yours.  I have to order them on line because no one around me sells them.   When your group fills in it will be beautiful.

Kimdawg, once they start to grow out a bit in my tank I would be happy to share. I hope i can put together some nice packs for people. It is difficult to get the colorful ones. I got most of them at Reefapalooza and Frag Farmers Market.

You have such a nice collection of zoanthids!  Thanks for taking the time to keep an updated list of which ones you’ve stocked.

I would love to take you up on that offer.  Even if it is one or two polyps of them I would be down for a frag pack if I can afford the price.  Please put me first in line when you are ready to sell.

Kimdawg and TatorTaco, you will have first dibs on zoas when I frag them. I'm gonna let them grow out for a couple more months before fragging though... 🙂

 

I do need to update my list of zoas though. Think its out of date at this point.

I think you are right. They are pretty close at least. Thanks for the help with the ID.

Tank is overall doing well. A couple zoa colonies are not doing well but they have always been tempermental for me (scrambled eggs and gatorades). Hopefully they rebound. Many of the colonies are really starting to grow quickly. I have started to frag back the Captain Jerk palys so they dont overrun the tank.Took a few pictures to go along with the update.

Very nice as usually.  I want to see where you will find room to add more frags.
