Joker’s Paly


The new Batman: The Dark Knight is coming out this weekend so I thought it’d be fitting to introduce the Joker’s Palythoa to you guys.

The Joker’s paly is a polyp coral that contains a purple body and a green skirt. It’s very similar to the Purple People Eater (PPE) and have often been mistaken for it by newbies. However, while similar, it’s polyps are not as big as PPE’s and it lacks a neon green mouth.

I would guess that the Joker’s paly was not named because it looks like the Joker or that it has colors that are similar to a clown. It may have been named Joker’s because for many PPE hopefuls, this paly has played a cruel joke on them and shattering their dreams.

However, if you can look beyond the named zoas fad, this is a pretty cool morph seeing how deep purple morphs are not all that common except for a couple of morphs. You feeling the funny yet?

    I’ve got a small colony of the Joker Palys and they look amazing. I can’t wait to see how they look as the colony grows larger.
