    Hard to believe we actually do not have a recent active one and no forum specific to these coral types, what's up with that:confused:.

    Any who please post your Zoanthids or Palys, please please please ID those puppy's for us not in the know.

    I am just learning how to take images of Zoanthids and Palys so camera tips for us newbies are welcome too.


    My Blue Palys, they were ugly bugly when I bought them. High light and they colored up nicely.

    Oh nice and thanks for contributing.

    I believe I like the Blue Hornets and the Magicians the best, yeah who does not like Blue Hornets. Blue Hornet are kind of where it all started. I remember the flaming threads on NR regarding the TRUE blue hornets, ahh good times. :eek:

    I am leaning toward Darth Mauls, VDM, and Blonde Blue Eyed %$$^^^.

    Utter Chaos another favorite.

    I also still like the old stand buys like Bams Bams and Lunar Eclipse. I am in the market for red or orange actually.

    Radio Active Dragons were the first zonathids I ever owned along time ago.

    Bam bams are the ones that got me into zoas. I don't know if you remember Corailline but I had a colony of over 100 of those bright orange beauties. To be honest though, I'm not collecting anymore than I have because they are the one coral that have made me want to pull my hair out! They grow like crazy then melt away out of the blue. I'm going through it now. Drives me nuts
