Mother Colonies From The Deep
Just for you Jarred1, and everyone else of course.
Below you'll find a running collection of parent/mother colonies of zoanthids and palythoas which are 4" x 4" or larger which I will add to daily. These large rocks are brought up from the ocean weekly and are truly stunning to look at. They are commonly collected at this size and many times even larger as well as some smaller. Divers have to take what they can when they can of course. Some of these pictures are from strict captive care and others were collected at the actual sizes shown. These sizes are very very common and nothing extraordinary by any means. All the kudos should go to those who collected and propagated them. I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I do.
If you have, own, seen etc. any mother/parent colonies 4" x 4" or larger and would like to add them to this thread, please feel free to do so.
I respectfully ask that this thread does not morph into a discussion of ID's and names. I want to leave that discussion out of this thread. Lets just post and enjoy the colonies as they are, stunning. Thanks.
