Rare Zoanthids

Purple Hornet

The Purple Hornet seems to be one of the newer zoas that recently came into the market as of this writing.  I remember seeing this zoa in a picture once about a year ago but no one seemed to be trading it at the time.  It’s nice to see that it’s finally coming into the market – even at its crazy price.

As you can see, this zoa sports a purple body with a distinctive yellow ring around the mouth and what appears to be a alternating purple and yellow skirt – definitely a gem in the industry.

So do you have these for trade or sale?  If so, please post in the comments section below.

As you can see, these zoas look pretty amazing in actinics as well.  Thanks Jarrod for sending the pictures.
