Nice collection and healthy specimens.
Any pointers or tips on how to get them to grow faster?

Thank you! Best tip I can give is this...
1) feed them. Growth will explode if you feed them a couple times per week
2) leave them alone! Too many people handle them, move them, or cut them far too much! Pick a spot for them, and leave them be. They will grow better when they get to sit still in one place

What do you feed your zoas?

Nice collection. Just started a zoa/pipefish tank myself.

+1 on what do you feed? Also you have a nice collection going there! It’s got to be cool to have some that you collected yourself.

*read that wrong. Wild caught vs collecting yourself. Either way still cool!
