Alright, Mucho issued a challenge, so lets see what we can do . . .
Don't want to turn this into a thread debating the "name game," but how about a thread discussing best placement of the various types of zoas. We all know that every zoa
is not the same, and the best current method we have to identify them is common or use names, so ID the zoa
by common or use name, describe your lighting and tank depth, and discuss where you placed them to achieve the best growth rate. Any additional comments on morphing due to lighting or depth can also be added. Pictures are also nice. Try to limit your post to a single zoa
each time, and lets see how many we can get posted up. Also, just for fun, lets run through the alphabet - so the first poster starts with a zoa
with an "A" name, and then on through the alphabet. If we complete the alphabet we'll start over again with A and go again.
For example; Hawaiian Ding Dang People Eaters
; Current lighting:
t5 6 bulb TEK fixture on a 24" deep tank Placement;
best growth was achieved at mid depth in the shade. Additional comments;
Too much light results in the bluish circle fading away, and can cause the oral disc to morph colors like the one pictured on the right.
