ZOA'S (sea carpet)

WOW! Thanks, Submariner! Those clams are AWESOME, man! Also - how the heck did you get your zoa's to grow so MUCH? WOW!

Hi jaquesb

the zoa's in the picture are a type of sea mat which grow like a carpet over the rocks
seems to be a bit harder to find in the hobby but if you look around i am sure you will find some.
