View Full Version : Possible zoa pox?

09/08/2017, 11:11 AM
I am new to the forum and was wondering if you all could help me out. I noticed two white spots on one colony of zoanthids. Does this look like zoa pox or could it be something else?

Looks like a polyp budding off of the side. Not something I would worry about.

Zoa pox looks more like sand stuck in the neck of the polyp, not to be confused with the sand that is actually incorporated into the flesh of paly's.

Agreeing with Jayball, just monitor it.
Typically, Zoapox usually causes most of the colony to close and polyps that do open are small and weak.

''Tis the season for Zoapox, though. Clean your heaters.

Doesn't look like zoa pox to me. I agree with the above posts and wouldn't be too worried about it!
