    Hey guys,

    Just been to animalia's house to pick up some Zoa's. Turns up I ended up getting every colour possible. Some really amazing colours. Will post pics later, just waiting for some of them to open up. The light are off now but I'll post some pics with a blue LED to show their colours. Looks awesome.

    Yeah will be awesome! Got some nice zoa's too --- but just saw this afternoon that some of them had died... quickly fragged the whole lot... so hold thumbs! (Beginning to think that this isn't my month for the tank!)

    tinusb,

    40 hours should have been fine, were they kept moist? Did they get too hot or too cold?

    Hi Anemone,

    I think they might've had a serious temperature drop. By the time I got 'em, I could already smell die-off...

    The first pic is light blue with an orange mouth, also on the same colony is yellow with an orange mouth. Those I didn't get from animalia but had them for a while. Got about 5 or 6 frags of it in my frag tank at the moment.

    At the moment it wont be worth while because most of the frags I have need to grow a bit. Give me a month or two then you'll have a lot of choice for different Zoa's and different mushrooms (If you like mushrooms) and metallic green star polyps.

    Only in my display tank. So the minute they start to spread I'll frag them.
