    World Wide Corals purple monster zoanthids wysiwyg.... These have been multiplying in my frag tank but they're a little bit smaller now(my f.tank lighting seems to be the culprit) than what they were originally. I got these from Lazy's Fraghouse out of Ohio. I only have 3 frags available so if they all sell by pre-sale there won't be any available at the Swap. Pick up of course at the Swap and preferably by 1:30 p.m.

    Ha, I googled nirvana zoanthids and had a hard time finding two identical pics. I have a feeling these will expand and do better under led's(lower light?) and will show their original colors and pattern better. Many of my zoas are doing fine and growing but a lot of them get smaller in my frag tank under my t-5's . Thinking about making the switch to leds(chinese box type) after the swap but we'll see....

    problem is lighting plays such a huge role for how zoa's look and so many people sell similar morphs under the same name.

    As for them getting large/smaller I notice flow plays a large role for me. My palys in high flow have big polyps and long stalks, my ones on the fragrack not so much

    I recently was talking to Capman and he mentioned seeing zoa in the cracks right on the surf break when snorkeling. I'm sure that's not true for all but it was nice to hear an account from the wilds. In all my dives I've never once seen one. Being in the cracks I would wonder how sheltered they were even on the break, Bill seem to think they were getting it pretty good.
