Red People Eater Palys

Got some new Red People Eaters and figured I'd share some pictures. Really cool how they turn orangish under a flash (last pic). Feel free to share your People Eater pictures! I'm currently on the hunt for some Purple People Eaters.

I love people eater, but cannot ever seem to keep them for some reason. All other zoas and coral are fine, but these for the life of me I can't keep. After I get them, they grow and look real good for a while, but eventually melt away. I've had red, purple, green, and a morph of red that was called flame. Good luck with your hunt!!!

Thanks! They were pretty cheap too.

Neogenocide, I wonder why that's happening? I hope mine don't do that. I've been looking at White People Eaters. They look pretty cool but I think I'll go for either Green or Purple People Eaters next.

I dont know why a lot of people have told me the same about people eaters. Anything different about your system you can point out?
Congrats on your colony and great pics!

There really isn't anything special about my system. It's pretty standard. 180g display tank, 125 gallon sump, 40b frag tank, and a 20g frag tank. Running a external Geo recirculating skimmer, and cheato in a refugium. My alk used to run a little low, but has since been addressed. I dose Alk and Cal via dosing pumps, all other water params are dead on. I don't have problems with any other corals, so I really have no idea what the problem is.

I really like all the different people eaters also and I received a good size chunk of red people eaters from a friend that is now in my zoa/paly/frag tank. One of the polyps fell off of the tile so I glued it to a plug and put it in my dt. The one that is now in my dt looks normal and great but the colony in my frag tank went through a bit of an extreme morph, I'm guessing from the leds I'm using, but the morph looks really cool. Let me know what you think.

Here is the frag in my dt under the t5s



And here is what they look like in my frag tank under the leds. I'm not sure where the second skirt came from but I can only guess it is from the leds.

Yup. I'm not sure why the LED's made all of my rpe's do that but everyone of them that is under those LED's looks like that now.

That's quite a morph! Do you have any other zoas that are under both your t5s and leds that have morphed in any way? Also very curious as to what leds you have running...

The brand of leds I'm using over my frag tank are reefbreeders and I love them and the rpe palys are the only ones to change at all under them which is why I don't get it but still think they look awesome, lol
