    I just picked up a ton of zoa frags from my LFS this weekend, and wouldn't even consider poking them with anything. Zoas are basically miniature colonial anemones, and one of the first rules of anemone care is to never poke them or force things into their mouths. I might be wrong, but just food for thought.
