Finally got enough frags to call this a quasi garden...I have a couple more through out the tank too...I am always in the hunt for inexpensive colors frags and this is what I have accumulated for an absurd 20$...lol

I don't play the name game cause I think it is ridiculous.. but here is what I have so far. Hopefully in a couple months my over flow pipe will be covered....there are three more mini colonies not pictured that were sold to me as VDM, Captain America's, and jerk palys...but like I said without actual paper work and proof they are such they are just pretty zoas to me "but they look like".

When they grow more polyps and fill in the empty space they're gonna look great.

Yeah that's going to be really fun to watch. Unless they are like zoas in my tank and barely grow. 😀

Mmmmmkay I just added a bunch more zoas...dangit...bad enough being addicted to the hobby..now this zoa addiction on top of it...glad I am not addicted to the name game and as such spending ridiculous money...though I did splurge and bought a colony of blue ridge coral

Thank-you I hope it fills in...I have a bunch more of slightly more nice palys else where in the tank I want to spread before I add them to the garden

any idea what the blue one at the bottom is??? droooool The bottom left side of the overflow was sold to me as fire and ice...but like I said I am trying not to get caught up in the name game...

That is going to be a nice Zoa garden!! thank-you...hope it works out and doesn't shrivel up into a large pile of zoa pox like my last attempt.
