I'm wanting to start a zoa tank in my 180g. I've made many trys at it, but every time I zoa frag, within a week the frag withers away and dies. Aside from the usual ammonia, nitrate, nitrite parameters, are there any other specific parameters I need to keep in check? The tank is a 180g with Aqua Illumination Sol Blue LED lighting. Two MP40s for flow. Fish are a pair of clowns, hippo tang, kole tang, wrasse, and magestic angel.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Are you sure the majestic angel isn't nibbling on them? They're known to feed on zoas.

Besides that, what are your steps for fragging? Telling us how you do it might help us see if it's all being done correctly.

Majestic Angel could be the culprit. I Haven't started making the tank into a zoa tank. It's something I want to do, but since the zoas keep dying I wanted to know if there are any specific water parameters I need to keep in check an if my Aqua Illumination Sol Blue LED lighting is good for keeping zoas.
