    I have 3-4 heads of these ugly looking zoas on my multicolor zoas colony. Any ideas on how to get rid of them.

    Thanks

    Cut them off and suck the heads out. Or Aptasia X also works

    I'd be more concerned of getting tid of the GHA evident on the rock.
    Kill those zoas and have their remains become food for more GHA?

    @irie ivan thats not the actual rock. I have no GHA in the tank. This was a pic i found on the net which resembled the ugly looking zoa.

    Ok, so ill try cutting them out individually.

    Thanks guys

    Maybe Aiptasia X would be your best bet
