This is a beautiful palythoa! The center is a purplish, its skirts is a yellowish green..maybe blue depending your lighting. They grow moderate, hardy, and love to be fed mysis. Polyps size a biggest a dime under the moderate flow.
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.
My pic isnt the greatest.......

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

Even the stripes in the skirts are the same- just cant see it in my pic.
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.
