    Wow… I really like #1 and #3. They look awesome! I always keep an eye open for specimens like that when I go to my local fish store. Unfortunately, it look like they don't have those nice one too often ;(

    Yeah, unfortunately great zoas are hard to find at your LFS – unless they also happen to be an Internet retailer who specializes in zoas. The best and cheapest ways to get these are probably through trades/buys with your local fish club members.

    I'll look on the internet. Anyway, I still have problems with zoas. I am not sure what I do wrong. I can keep anemones, sps and all kinds of stuff without problem but always have problems with the zoas. I might want to fix this problem before to put money in nice specimens.
