Hi guys/and girls,

Where do I get/order special zoas from?
I am specifically interested in zoas like the following:

Blue/Purple Hornets;
Fruitloops;
Spiderman;
Speckled fire and ice;
Candy Apple red;
Blue Shuriken;
Armor of God;
Blond Blue Eyed Blondies;
Pink Zippers, etc.

Anyone an idea where I can get these ones from, or do you maybe have a frag or two to sell?

Much appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks, I am sure they cost a lot more! :) Do the lfs request such lists from suppliers, or are is there a place in SA that I can order from?

I see there are a couple of online stores overseas, but those shipping rates just doesn't make it possible.

Unfortunately if they are brought into the country they will be so expensive that most won't buy them anyway.

We're talking about a few hundred rand to a couple grand a polyp depending on how rare they are.

also what the the lfs orders and what they send is a different story so u might end up with normal zoas. there was a guy selling all his zoas in ct not long ago.

Decent zoas cant be ordered by name over here, as guys have said it just says zoanthids on our LFS lists when they order so its luck of the draw what comes in. That being said you do get some very nice colours now and then that come into the country...you just have to keep your eye out for them.

Not so at all...there is a guy in Cape Town who was going to bring in "Ultra" zoas and they weren't going to work out too pricey per rock...and the pics I saw, these were like nothing we get in this country...alas it seems to have fallen through at this stage...cites permits I assume when it comes to importing.
