    Just out of curiosity does anyone know what kind of zoas and palys these are? Sorry the pictures arent that great, I turned the daytime light on to get pictures so a couple of them are still clossed, the first one is like an orange with a green center but the whole thing neon green under actinics, and then the brown ones have like a cream center, and the blueish green ones have a yellow rim and then a blue/green color with a bright colored dot in the center. Thanks in advance =]

    I can help you with the last zoas: Radioactive Dragon Eyes.
    The fist ones are also Palys, not zoanthids
    Very nice pieces. :)

    Not many palys have fancy names. Usually those are just called brown polyps or button polyps.

    Unfortunately with paly's and zoa's, most names are just something fancy the vendor names and usually differs from area to area. But that doesn't mean they can't be awesome! :)
