    Those are very nice, they go for around $50 per polyp in the LA area, and that's between reefers, i'm sure it would be more from a LFS!

    Ummmm, Dave, where did you order these from? I could be wrong, but, these are L.A. Laker zoas. My understanding is there are no Green Hornets. If there were (and I can't find any) the main color would be green with a different color ring.

    Purple Hornets

    Normally any hornets (blue, purple, or red) have a thin lined ring.

    I only mention all this as I would hate to see you get taken advantage of.

    Good catch, Fast. I remember someone posting a picture of the "Lakers" zoas earlier.

    Whatever they are called, well worth it for $25 for 20 polyps imo.

    I agree, that is an awesome price for those. But again, they are not Green Hornets. They don't even fit the criteria or appearance of any other Hornet out there.

    That is too funny. So now there is "criteria" for naming a zoanthid color morph? Please show me this list of requirements. Just remember, someone got in a shipment of zoas and decided to name them, then everyone decided to give them names. They are not a seperate species. 10-15 yrs ago you bought zoas...period. They didn't have names, only colors. ;)
