I'm starting to get into higher end zoas and was wondering what I need to look out for and what to dose to ensure they don't melt on me. I've had pretty decent luck with some no named zoas but don't want to take chances with higher end ones. Any tips?

If you can keep the regular ones that you should be fine with any. In my case I cannot keep Darth Mauls alive no matter how many times I tried.

My zoas range from really basic ones to Sunny D's, Fruit Loops, and others that I dont know they names of.

I'm getting a couple of candy apple orange polyps. I don't want them to melt.

Anyone suggest what to dose specifically helps zoa color / growth.

It's such a crap shoot. I'm about to buy a pack for $300. Don't want that to go to waste. Hoping to increase the odds.

and make sure you get pics of them open of the ones that you are going to buy. cause you don't want to get **** DUD'S sent to you and then your like waiting a week for them to open and then nothing happens.

dude thats alot of frags. in what time frame did you get all that? im not sure how much of a bio load zoas are on a tank but the motto definitely is to move slowly.

I have rastas and they did great in my tank. went from 2 polyps to over 30. I have noticed that they dont like to be fragged though. i fragged a few polyps and a frag with only one polyp melted.

that exactly what i meant about the rastas been funny i frag them and sometimes they do great and sometimes they melt and i have give them again those thing are weird also after u frag them u ever notice the take a while to open up like how they was they look droopy and stuff i i have nice size colony also even tho lately i been fragging a little too much after this weekend some my zoas are going on the don't frag list till i have above 40 heads it just lately i been trading and some my zoas been on the request list so u know how that goes but my collecting is getting bigger even some nice colony been reduce to mini .. but if u have those and they doing good u should be good to go some zoas is not going to like Ur tank i came to that conclusion and that the way it is so even if u have some that grow like crazy some will still melt even if there is nothing wrong with ur tank maybe its were they come from or something idk
