    Smile What are the Brightest Blue Zoanthids? What are the Most Expensive?

    My favorite color is blue so I was wondering what are the Brightest Blue Zoanthids out there?

    Also, what are the most expensive? I remember seeing some on the internet somewhere that were $200 a polyp!

    Lastly, How fast do they reproduce?

    To be honest buy what you like. As far as whats the best and blueist? All zoa's will look different under different lighting. Check out this site to get a better idea
    CoralPedia.com :: Zoanthids, Palys

    Like i mentioned in your acro growth thread, zoa's are the same way, it all depends and some grow faster/slower than others.

    the most expensive seem to be the ones that get the most hype and the most silly names. From what I have seen, they get cheaper after awhile, and you can find things VERY similar for a fraction of the cost. Tubbs blues are real nice, that might be a good start.

    Hello Reef Guy. I agree with EMU, coloration is relative to lighting and other variables in your tank. They can be dirt grey in my tank and royal blue in another.

    Also, what are the most expensive?

    Hmmmm, I don't know if anyone knows that one. The most expensive ones don't mean anything and really won't gurantee longevity. Again, I agree with EMU, just fine something you like and if it's cheap, I say buy that one and just nuture it like crazy and I'm sure you'll be very happy.


    I remember seeing some on the internet somewhere that were $200 a polyp!


    Lastly, How fast do they reproduce?
    Tank conditions, age, lighting, current, parameters and a dozen other variable will solely determine how fast the will grow or even if they will survive in anyone's system.


    Thanks for sharing and good luck on your search and your purchase.

    Please stop fragging your frags.......you'll eventually do more damage than good. Just let them grow.

    How much do Tubbs Blue's cost?

    Was anyone selling those at the Lansing Frag Swap?

    the price is all over the place on them. I have seen them for $1-$4+ a polyp. Mine fell in the rock and lost them or I coulda hooked you up.

    Check with the vendor list here on CR.

    It seems like coralmorphic had some bright blue zoas, and i'm pretty sure cherry corals has some tubbs blues.

    The selling or want to buy forum are also good places to look. Tubbs blues are pretty easy to find, and can be found pretty cheap.
