    Just started developing an interest in Zoas and wanted to see some of the varieties others have. I will start with a picture of the two I have, unsure what or if they have a name.

    Nice zoas! Those might be Slim Jims?

    The naming convention on zoas and other corals is just ridiculous. How about 'nice purple ones with orange lashes'? :D

    Also, here's a good resource for anyone wanting to look up corals - either to figure out what you've got or to find corals with "Red base, green tentacles" or whatever to compliment your current livestock.

    Yeah I don't care much about the names of corals, just what they look like. Nice purple ones with orange lashes sounds like the perfect name to me.

    Are those the ones you got from us? If so, the ones on the left I have been calling a "fire and ice morph" (agree with above comments about naming!) and the long lashed ones on the right are RR Sailor Moon. They are looking good!

    They are indeed I was just about to message you and see if you have any new stuff for sale. I swear the sailor moons grow at least one polyp per day probably more.
