Sorry, what are snowflakes? I have been growing several colonies of different zoas, that were doing great. All of a sudden two colonies, on different sides of the tank started not opening then disingtegrated (sp?), leaving big holes in the colony. Not all of the zoas died in these colonies and other zoas throughout the tank are fine. Any thoughts?

We are talking about the blue anthelia. Total pest IMO.

A bit older... but none the less...





I never did get a final shot of these guys before I broke down the tank... Long story short they were about 7" wide growing right across the sand.

I'm sure some facet of supply and demand, although the market is large up here it's nothing close to what you folks have down south. Lower demand equates to lower prices, we also have some pretty wicked LFS up here.

This is what happens when you don't frag.

I started this colony over 3 years ago with 6 polyps.



And now today.

Oh it's so nice to see big colonies as opposed to single polyps.

What happens when two different zoa's grow into each other like that...do they stop expanding or does one color lose the battle and die off to allow room for the other?

IME,usually they (zoanthids) kinda stop spreading for the most part. The palythoas are more apt to overgrow the smaller zoanthids.

Those were good times!
Some nice pictures there!!!

Please keep'em coming.
The pictures taken in the ocean are nice too!

Those colors are great! Hope they didn't do any photoshop. It's great to have zoas like that in tank. Very nice!

Yep, the way people think nowadays is completely different.
Now it's about the plugs and more plugs...

Grandis.

And still growing. I've noticed colonies start intermingling and they do not fight each other. I have seen larger palys shade smaller zoa.

Woops just noticed date. Oh well ...
