    Bummer! Are you sure they are gone? If you think some might be alive, you are welcome to toss it into our 65g for a while and see if any come back? Also, we have a lot of zoas and you are more than welcome to come over and check them out and frag any that interest you.

    Zoas are pretty tough. If they're not all dried out or melted, they can recover.

    Yeah I'd say most can survive a night in a bucket. Like being shipped.

    Condolences. Keep and eye on the crevices in the rock... It's still possible some survived. I can give you some blow pops and vamps if you want.

    I would think severe cold would be worse than lack of water...

    How big was the rock? If it was dry overnight and large enough I'd take it back out. It could set off a new cycle.

    Cold(room temp) actually can help with dissolved oxygen and slower metabolism. Cold air is less a problem than cold water due to lower heat capacity of air. Damp plus wind chill is not so good though.

    They go through worse on the boats when wild collected.
