Hi all! I want to know if there is a way to make custom zoas or hybrids. I want to see what I can come up with.

Thanks a lot.

you might have some luck growing a few in close proximity and hope they hybridize on their own, highly unlikely or will take a really long time.

or you can try the brute for method, by grafting them, but really doesnt work with zoas.

corals really arent a build a bear workshop, especially not softies. i think some sps are easier to "hybridize"

Have a couple hybrids of nuclear green and purple death. It happened accidentally when I'm too lazy to separate them when they grow onto each other rocks. Be honest, the hybrids look ugly.

Close proximity will change some of the polyps . I've never tried to frag the individual polyp' s that have changed in color To see if the new polyps exhibit the same color.
I know the pic is bad quality but here is an example of an eagle eye that has started to take on some of the colors of it's neighbor
Notice a green Center of one of the eagles eye

Sometimes zoas will just morph, and I think that's more often than not, how you get the hybrids.
