    Remove the ones that are on your gravel and superglue them to a rock

    If I were you Storm I would leave it on the piece of rock until you've got a couple of polyps growing on it. Alternatively cut it off of the rock and use superglue to glue it to another rock and then leave to just grow.

    Just a quick question on zoanthids, do you guys feed them anything specific or add anything by means of supplements to help your zoas flourish?

    When I started my tank 2 blue zoas came along as hitchikers, the first pic show them about 3 months after I started.
    If left alone this is the type of growth you can expect.

    Its fine, the strange thing is ive had this since the tank started (Sometime last year) It has never propagated itself although I propagate other things which successfully grow. So i decided maby i should try some manual intervention. the only thing that's happend to it is its trippled in size since the start..
