We'll bring you to the darkside soon, Arnold. Just you wait! hehe
You guys are all to funny.
I also caved. Its okay we are all addicts.
I didn't get one because I'm broke :| ..
Sell the new house, Phong...hehe.
LOL.. yet tell my wife that next time we go to the store Robert.. :bigsmile:
I had a few types of zoanthids from africa before but for some reason i couldn't keep them alive.
Just curious but how's everyone frags doing? Some folks reported theirs don't look too good and the last colony we have in the shop showing sign of withdrawn as well. Does anyone else have similar issue? Just want to know for my future refference. TIA.
Mine looks poor, but I'm still adjusting my water. Thanks for helping me with my water. I recalibrated my refractometer. The salinity is rising slowly, and I'm letting the alkalinity decrease a little. Thanks again for your help.
One of my frags has some white fungus looking stuff on it, the other is receding and turning yellow... Similar post over at nano-reef about these.
Both my 5 polyp frag and my 40 polyp frag are going down. I did not see any disease. They would do fine for a few days, then start shrinking. Eventually the polyps become very thin (still the same length) and not open anymore before dissapearing. Most polyps are doing this with a few still holding in there for now. I have the frags together with my other zoas, and others do not seem to be affected so far.
Robert, did you pick those polyp that failed off your workbench
Mine were doing great until 2 days ago , then started shrinking. Everything else in the tank is fine.
Sounds like African blues that I picked up a couple of years ago.
They wilted away after about two weeks as well.
mine did the same exact thing...in the beginning all was fine and dandy until several days ago...they shrank and never opened again...all my other zoas are doing great. i wonder if they are hard to keep?
I remember them coming on the market a couple of years ago but all the sudden stopped. I think no one had any success keeping them alive.
FWIW, Someone on Nano-reef mentioned trying super low light with short durations, and a salt level around 1.028-.029
My zoas are not doing well too.
Is there any published data on the ocean water parameters around where these african zoas are collected?
wow interesting... suck to hear that everyone is losing theirs though ..
this is the same thing that happened years ago as I posted about in the beginning of this thread, same looking zoas, same deaths. The ppl that kept em alive said they developed a purple coloring and are now known as purple hornets..............
