    To be truthful, I don't even know what kind of zoa I have here (an ID would be awesome).

    I noticed that one of my eyes is solid pinkish / orange while the rest have a tiny center. is this normal? does it mean something?

    Looks like what everyone calls the "Eagle Eye" zoas, but that is literally just a name concieved to sell corals. All are the same species. The one on the right is probably a polyp that morphed; that can happen as the colonies grow out.

    You just have two different color morphs. Nothing wrong there. Good looking zoas.

    Hmmm...not sure on an ID but it looks like the one polyp is actually a different zoa than the rest of them, but maybe it's just me.

    All very good info to digest, thanks fellas. I just was afraid of some sort of horrible disease going on that was going to wreck my budding coral growth.

    Man that is crazy, my contacts will go out trying to figure this out. lol
