Hi all just a quick question when buying coral online what would you consider a frag or a colony on Zoas ?
I bought a zoa that was listed as a colony and it was 5 or 6 polyps

Personally a "colony" of zoas would be a fist size rock covered in them..
A frag would be on a frag plug..

5-6 is certainly a frag to me regardless of what its mounted on...

^ I have purchased a lot of frags lately and most of the zoas are at least 4 polyps. Price should be an indicator.

This is what I'd lean towards as well.

Seems like frags of zoas are getting smaller and smaller, especially online. I'm seeing single polyps sometimes.

Anyway, seller should have stated how many polyps or how many inches. I wouldn't call that a colony either, but you should have something quantitative when you buy something.
