    In the pic on the left, the red and white ones look like fire 'n' ice, not sure about the ones on the right. I call 'em nice zoas. Next time I frag all my zoas and try to sell em, I'm gonna give them fancy names and see if people pay more for them lol

    The ones in the first pic with the Eagle Eyes are either Fire and Ice, or Ring of Fire. No idea what the others are. You can also check zoaid.com

    The Ring of Fire zoas are really nice. I have them, and they grow like crazy and get fairly big as well.

    I have something similar to the ones on the right. Mine have florescent orange specs under actinic lighting. I was told they're called a mohawk polyp, and can be rare. Not sure how true this is, but they've been selling quickly by a local frag place at $5 for 2 polyps.

    Just so you know, all zoas don't have names. Some of the nicest I've seen are unnamed.
