These Zoas have really taken off the last few weeks. Have 8 polyps and 3 nubs. Due to the angle, I couldn’t get a sharp picture of all the heads. The glass distorts the macro lens.

1.0255
DKh 8.6
Ca 430
Ph= 7.9-8.25
180 Par
Medium to high flow

Ah well I found a 10th polyp. I assume it was hidden when I took my photos yesterday? What happened to the others who were participating..

WE HAVE A WINNER!!! :be happy:

Congrats to Steve who ended up with over 12 polyps.  Also, congrats to Brian (heinbaughb) with a close second place.  Thanks to the club for adding a second place prize ($25 gift card).  Thanks to all who participated.
This should be a yearly event.

My favorite part was that Kelly had to give me free zoas.
