Claire's entry starting picture that has 2 polyps. Claire is a paid member, wanted to join the fun and did signup at the last meeting. I am posting Claire's for her because Claire's account 'CKarge' status is non-member.
Thanks for extending the first photo entries for this Sunday.

All,

Been sick for over a week now fever that wouldn't quit.

Just getting to this now. So took mine about 4 days to open (5 polyps total) (not sure why as my other zoas in tank are fine) but shortly after opening something got to the plug and sawed it into 3 pieces two two"s and a single (I found them in tank and re mounted them (kinda wish it was that easy every time). I took pics but am guessing it disqualifies me.

Better luck next time.

You are good. Choose one now as your entry and go with the Two starting number.

No switching and you are good to participate.!

Welp, after mine blowing off the plug and circulating around the tank I've located them. Glued to a snail shell and secured to some rock. Looks to me like I have 4 somewhat opened polyps.

Nice luck! I can never find mine when the go rouge.

Interesting thought though.... glue them on a live snail! [emoji848]

@aresangel, that would be a great idea, but I can assure you that this snail has gone to greener pastures.

Im dong my update now before I forget since the holidays are coming soon. I don’t know if this is normal, but I have seen some nice growth in my zoas. I have about 3-4 new heads that have started to grow and open. So went from 5 to 8 or 9.
