    Some General Guidelines for Zoas and Paly Coral Care

    While they can tolerate a wider range of water parameters, this will not remove your responsibility to provide the best water conditions that you can as detailed below
    Salinity: 1.025 to 1.027
    Temp.: 77 to 79 degrees F.
    Nitrates: below 5 ppm is best for long term health, however they tolerate much higher levels for a period of time.
    Phosphates: below 0.05 ppm
    Water Flow: Between moderate to low flow but not directed at the coral
    Lighting: Moderate to Low. Some can handle higher levels of lighting if properly acclimated
    Alkalinity (dKH), Calcium, Magnesium, and pH, all should be balance with each other as described in the below link:

    If you have any idea, please provide some recommendations of zoas keeping

    Thanks for the information. Any idea why some zoas can multiply but some just get smaller and smaller in the same tank and side by side (i.e. same light and same flow)?

    I suppose u are talking about different type of zoas. Some zoas require different conditions. What I notice. Some can go under high lighting which will becomes smaller. Under high flow, longer skirting/ tentacles. Etc...

    Yes, I am talking about different types of zoas. For instance, my LA Lakers disappeared beside my Eagle Eyes that was growing.
