    Guys why dont we get Zoa's like these here in SA?

    i mean i can probably bet 95% of you felloww reefers wouldnt mind a frag or two of these, maybe someone here has the answer?

    can you imaging a tank dedicated to these guys only , wow what a low maintanance and a stunning tank it would be!

    deadly though ROFL

    Super Colour Zoas...very expensive! I enquired a while back from my LFS about them and he reckoned about R900 a rock and it would have about as many zoas on the rock as picture 5. He wouldnt bring them in because he said you dont know what colour you getting either.

    Here is another pic for you...

    You must remember, everything looks different under a zoom lens.

    I would say I've seen the following or very similar, on our shores, just gotta now where to look;)

    pic 1 and 4 look 99% the same:whistling:

    correct they are bud , i can imaging the guys at the coast getting to see very similar as you say but for the guys here in JHB , we would need to buy them instead of pick them ROFL.

    thus my question

    @ SweetnSour. The trouble with these pics is some of the photographers do a little colour enhancing before posting. I have a colony of Zoa's that looks simplar to one pic you listed. Check It. You may have to look in my gallery. When I'm on the laptop the pics won't load up.

    Marine Aquariums of South Africa

    I must admit i did fiddle with the colour a tad.
    I think a lot of these zoa's come from the Great Barrier Reef and they don't export! Or they don't export easily:(
