I am looking for information on a zoathind that I think is named mountain meadow or prairie. It has yellow, blue, green but I cannot find reference anywhere. I saw one on ebay in early 2007.

For comparison it looks sort of like "nuclear sunshine".

Any information is appreciated.

do you know it's origin? Your pseudo name is about as useful as a titt on a boar.

Names on ebay are not relevant to anyone's experienced photographic memory.

Pics would definitely help, tinyfish

I was very hesitant to post on this forum because I expected ridicule. Thank you for your time.

Like Kigs was saying, I think pics would be best.

Now a days 1 specific polyp will be name or known as 100 different names yet its the same polyp people are talking about or trying to descibe. ( Its a shame but thats reality )

This was the first time I've heard of that zoa name description....

My comment did not mean to come off as ridicule, I apologize tinyfish...I've seen much sillier names than that, I assure you. :D

I did not know about the common names being so numerous. I was always terrible at biology because of the naming of things. I can't remember people's names either.

Scleractinia is what Cherry Corals is saying.

My brain is not working and I cannot remember exactly what the ones I was after actually looked like or any other information. I am sorry. I think it is part of aging.

I am terrible at posting pictures on RC also but here goes.

Why would you say you're stupid. You had a legitimate question tinyfish. I was defending you.

tinyfish can you get a better picture? That one is really small. Post it to photobucket and then attach it in a response. I was not trying to ridicule you, but the goofy name.

tinyfish,
The section in which zoa IDs are done is located here at this link http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=484

I think that pic kinda resembles Green Bay Packers, what do you guys think?

By the way tinyfish, I just wanted to make sure you knew that I gave you that link incase you were one of the many who didn't know the section existed, not to degrade you or make fun of you.
It's just that I wasn't aware of it for a loooong time (lol) so I figure others might not know about it.

I was going to say a morph of Green Bays... lighter colored.
