    I know... I know...

    This won't help my case either. This will be for the rest of my zoa garden, someday.

    Fruit loops, supermans that really haven't opened up yet, left is panama blues, right is cherry charms, superman or reverse sm monti. oh wait, there's more

    Let's see, miami vice morph, lady zippers, pink auroras, rastas, scrambled eggs, magicians. I think that's it...

    Frag swap and then a live sale recently...
    Some of them are not as happy as I hope they will be someday. Some haven't colored up as well either. But I do have some new lights on the way...

    This reminded me of the mixed acan rocks that were popular for a short while.

    I just put about 8 different frags on a rock about a week ago, going for the same effect. I will post a picture of mine when my lights come on tomorrow.

    Love zoa names
    So that's how you do it. Just out them all together on a rock. And then wait?

    I am also going for he Zoa garden in my tank. Ive been bitten. Sadly I have more variety on plugs in my racks than I do on my rocks. Wife scolds me on this. ive glued a few to the rocks but hold off on more because "what if I want to sell some"?

    then again, my rock is about 70% covered in a single flavor.

    Like everyone else I love zoas. Seams I go to get a new piece and end up waking away with another zoa.

    I've been attaching each new one to a new smaller piece of dry rock.

    Mine are:
    Gorilla nipples
    Tubbs blue
    Radioactive Dragon Eyes
    Whammin watermelons
    Utter chaos

    The gorillas are growing like mad.

    I have a few zoa gardens. I like them and all. But I constantly tell myself, a nice acro colony would be nicer in its place.

    I'll try to post a picture of what I have.

    I did this in my 75gal mixed reef. Stick a bunch of zoa frags on a decent size rock, sit back and wait..... about a year lol. Not the greatest pic, but here was mine starting to take form.
