    Default Z & P ID's

    I've searched everywhere for ID's on these three, with no luck. I'm hoping one of the resident Zoa gurus can help me stick a moniker on these...

    1) This has become one of my favorites, it's colors are metallic and it's about the size of a dime.

    2) This one morphs as the polyps reach full size - The center changes from solid blue, to a red/blue blend.

    3) Sorry - Not a great photo of this one, the center is baby blue with a bright pink fringe.

    Thanks for your help!

    They are awesome! Not sure about the ID though...the second ones might be flamming hornets (looks like the "Japanese deep water" zoass that were coming in a lot last year. To be sure, I would need a sample for closer observation.

    ^ I agree w/ the second pic being a Japanese deepwater.

    #3rd pic looks like a polyp out of Hawaii- has become semi common (as a polyp can get out of hawaii). Not sure if a name has been given to it yet- will look into it. Fuly open pic will be the only way to be 100%, but think I know what his polyp is already.

    First one...I havnt got a clue....a description of placment and lighting will help with that one. A pic in strait 10k lighting vs. the pic will help alot too. A comparison will probly be very helpfull for ID on that polyp.

    Will get back soon!

    Thumbs up And the answers are...

    Thank you everyone. I got a few different replies,

    On the first Paly there were numerous different suggestions - Terple Terrors, Bloodshots, True Watermelons from Richard Negret, Japanese Deepwaters, Strawberry Wines, Lotus Eaters (a Caribbean morph) and Cornbred's Watermelons...Many were very similar, but I agree with ReeferRob and think they are Cornbred's Watermelons.

    On the second Zoa, the consensus was Emeralds on Fire, (Thank you Bongo Shrimp) to which I agree although these might be morphed a bit with the changing color center and more metallic fringe.

    The third generated two responses, Palythoa of Justice branded by Crazy Ricks and Sweet Dreams (Thanks again Bongo Shrimp.)

    Thanks to everyone for helping me reference these!
