Terrible picture but I'm in! Thanks Mike and Jill for having me over yesterday!
I still need to pick mine up. @Enderturtle, think you could bring it down with you this Saturday for CRC's event?
Here is mine:
Anybody else want to pick up their zoa this Saturday? i will be at california reef co.
Currently im going to bring denzils.
I can see you this Saturday at Ca Reef Co.
What is a good time for you?
Ill be there all day.
Okay so im bringing a frag for:
Let me know soon if you want to pick up your frag at the event.
Here is my beast, acclimated and doing well, playing with the macro lens some lately.
I got my frag from @Enderturtle but managed to rip it in half in the process of refragging it on a new plug.
I guess time will tell if it survives, haha. I think this effectively disqualifies me from the running.
My zoa is still doing OK but I'm going to wait a week to move him from the frag plug to a live rock since they seem so fragile. Thanks to Mike for the warning on these guys.
Yeah I actually dont recommend switching out the frag plugs on these until theyve become acclimated to your tank for a week or two. But with the right tools and precision you could get them off the plug if you want to do so.
The frag plugs theyre on are relatively clean and my tank is pest free if you want to take my word. I recommend dipping everything from any tank though.
They cost 10$ to purchase but that is the discounted price for BAR members. They arent a cheap "10$ zoa" in the sense of hardiness and growth rate.
In other words, theyre a sensitive mid-end zoa which require a little extra care.
I made a thread on how I ripped another kind of zoa in half and how it survived. I dont think this one is as hardy lol.
The following members have not picked up their frags yet.
You have until June 16th but I would prefer you pick up before then.
Anybody else who wants to join. You have until June 16th to pay and pick up. Two Spots left.
Kind of sad that I'm out before everyone has even started...
I was a little overzealous with mine and mounted it the day I brought it home. Looked nice for a couple of days, then went out of town for work last week, and came back to it just gone. Should have let it settle in for a while before stressing it by scraping it off the plug and gluing to my rockwork.
Good luck everyone!
I'm a bad man, I just break the bottoms of the plugs off and glue it to my rocks.
@Enderturtle can I pick up Wednesday night?
Sounds good Ryan. You have my number.
Picked it up yesterday. Per instructions very slow acclimation. Opened up a some yesterday but definitely more finicky than reg Zoas (the other frags I picked up at the same time were fully open within minutes after that slow acclimation).
Here it is this morning.
Nice picture vincent!
Prisonfood53 still have a zoa for you.
Mine is still kicking, not looking as happy as the other zoas in the tank.
Alright everyone has picked up their zoas.
I'm gonna lock this thread.
Upload all future pictures in the tracking thread found here
If you want to register, send me a Private Message. You have until June 14th to pay and pick up.
You do not need a picture for June but post a picture if you want to keep track of its growth anyways.
Let's grow some zoas!
