    haha Pat it would be SWEET to have a frag of space monsters like that . . . Looks good though. Space Monster is one of my favorites, it's definitely a polyp that stands out.

    From all the online pics, the posted pic, and seeing my polyps in person- mine are the same. All the way down to the description and growth rate.

    They are fast enough growers that I share them on a regular basis.

    FWIW, they look the same to me Sir Patrick. I think with zoas and palys, especially named high-end ones, people can get very picky with ID's. Zoas and Palys can and do look slightly different in different tanks due to flow, lighting, nutrients etc... With the prices people can get for zoas its rare to see a colony like yours, maybe if you had a few polyps on a frag plug they would be more convincing as Space Monsters It's hard not to get caught up in the craze but I wish it were easier to find some decent priced colonies nowadays, seems like everything gets chopped down to 1-3 polyps.

    Nice photography skills Wolverine, great looking zoas! I have always liked the green/purple combo in zoas.

    Your's look pretty similar and more over have that extraterrestrial property that makes it impossible for the camera to focus. I think this makes your's true Space Monsters.
