    Thinking of adding some more to my tank and looking to see if I can find cooler specimens online vs what's available locally. Any suggestions for good zoa venders?

    I ordered from Coral Morphologic, not bad for wild non high end zoas with a decent price-tag.

    I also wrote up a pretty detailed vendor evaluation of em! B-)

    Thanks guys! Lots of neat stuff.
    Wow, I'm shocked at how much some of those cost for just one or two polyps. :shock:

    Fast, you know my tank.... I'm just looking for bright colors. Right now all i have is this dual colony.

    For good colors, check out LAreefs.com - they don't have a huge selection, but they have some really vivid colors, and the price is pretty reasonable.

    I just joined and stumbled upon this post. I can't PM yet, but I am interested in some exotic zoos for my store display tank. Thanks!

    Dennis, there are alot of on-line retailers for zoas, and some carry a very nice varielty of color and morphs. The thing to watch out for is the wild caught zoas. They have a very low survival rate in our tanks, and will melt within a month. Whatever you end up getting, and from whomever, try to make sure it is a captive bred coral.

    That being said, this is what I have and frag quite often.

    If you look on zoaid.com you can view much better pics of the corals, I can never seem to get them to show the true color on camera. I also have Tubbs Blues, Spidermans, Purple Hornets, Green Bay Packers, Green People Eaters and Blue Devils.
