For an interesting gallery with many of the named zoanthids, visit

http://www.zoaid.com. Created by a member on RC, and maintained

pretty well. Good identification of many different rare zoanthids.

I'm fairly confident that I havent covered everything, but I dont want to recreate the entire zoanthid forum in one post, so I 'tried' to limit myself on each section. Hopefully this is a good start, if others would like to PM me links to other threads they might find useful, I'd be glad to edit it, and after maybe a week or so, I'll throw together a finalized version that I can talk to a mod about making a sticky. I'd like this thread to be for suggestions on additions/subtractions. I only searched back maybe 20 pages in the forum, so I'm sure I've not covered everything.

good job! :D

Excellent start!

I've already made this a sticky....

Thanks, this is by no means a final version, and I'm sure it'll go through many edits as I recieve ideas and comments, but heck, for a 3am project it was fun.

whodah 07/19/2005 07:25 AM

one thing that's asked quite frequently is:

where do i buy neat zoas?

there are a few threads on it... but i cannot seem to seach 'em out? i dunno... my search contains 'where buy' and i get a weird 'oops' message... maybe cause i'm using the criteria 'where' which is a mysql key word.

at any rate, a couple links to those threads would be nifty i think! :)

tekknoschtev 07/19/2005 09:06 AM

I was considering that, but isnt that essentially advertising? I suppose if the general consensus is 'go for it' then they could be added without a problem, but it might cause more problems than its worth. However, a link to the reviews (I forget the title) of the online vendors might be useful.

SuperFishy 07/19/2005 12:03 PM

woah, just noticed this, GJ tekk

i definetly see your point...

i was trying to think of what else was asked every other week or so if ya know what i mean! :)

but i definetly see where yer goin w/ that and, fwiw, am content listing or not listing that info. :)

tekknoschtev 07/19/2005 09:48 PM

We'll see, I'm glad people are participating - exactly what I'm looking for, the things that get asked EVERY week. I'll talk to a moderator and see how it works on the forums. Some businesses may not appreciate it, especially if there is negative feedback on their establishment.

Mr. Ugly 07/20/2005 02:22 PM

This is great!

my2girls 07/20/2005 08:11 PM

I agree!

BradL. 07/21/2005 01:10 PM

This is a great idea!

fishylad 07/21/2005 03:45 PM

Great thread!!!
 
I just got some as a gift you could say and had no idea about them or what to do with them. I found this thread and am so happy. It appears all my questions will be answered here. Thank you for taking the time to do this.

Now I just need to take the next 2 days off to read all the info collected here. :D

Trust me, after you spend the 2 days reading, you'll be more than hooked, and spend weeks reading. I only started our first saltwater tank 6.5 months ago, sort of mind boggling all of the information I've sucked up from this forum.

I'm glad people are finding it useful.

tekknoschtev 07/21/2005 05:08 PM

Seeing as I have lost abilities to edit the post (its more than 60 minutes old) and also considering this is a draft, I'm going to be adding things here for a bit until I feel we have enough covered to make a final draft - at which time, mods may delete the first draft.

Additions:

Hitch Hikers/Pests with Zoanthids:
Sundial Snails - Tiny Predators


Ideas:

Its been discussed about having links to places that sell zoanthids, any thoughts yay or neigh to this? I'm not sure with sponsors and such if it would work, so I'm hoping a moderator will jump in, if not, moderators, expect a PM shortly :D

whodah 08/08/2005 06:03 PM

an edit is needed:

your 'Zoo dip' refers to the 'nudibranches no more' post reguarding that green wrasse.

it should point to:
http://reefcentral.com/forums/showth...hreadid=451720

i came across this today when referencing this thread to help someone else! :)

VERY handy, and ty again! :D

Nagel 08/08/2005 06:19 PM

tekknoschtev - when you gather enough info for a good update, let me know I will just edit it in..

Great read, a lot of good info. :thumbsup:

Mrs.kbmdale 09/17/2005 11:45 PM

This is an AWESOME thread!!! :thumbsup: But what about adding or createing one for Palythoa's and ProtoPalythoa's??? I think that would also be an awesome thread/idea......
