I’m thinking maybe flat surface on top , and then stick others to sides , get a few different coloured ones to make it multi-coloured

Right I’ve started on the floating zoa rock idea ,
I’ve cut down the floating rock and made a flat Plato surface on top ready to start adding multi-coloured zoas,

I’m hoping to achieve a floating zoa rock that looks something like this for colour.

Can you put some holes in the sides to put frag plugs into rather than having to stick them? (might help with the gravity challenge!)


I have done similar of some rockwork and as the zoas expand off the plug and onto the rock you can always remove the plug itself and swap for a different one if you fancy

On the pic you can see where i have removed the utter chaos frag plug from the rock to the right. (Some of them zoas not.looking their best as i dropped the frag plug on them! lol)

All of the zoas on the rocks are/started on frag plugs dropped into holes like that

That’s the sort of thing I’m hoping to achieve with Zoas but so far I’m struggling getting the little bugers to grow  lol

Looks pukka , like what you’re trying to do , have you tried spot feeding the zoas using a turkey baster ,

I’ve not really been a great fan of zoas till recently so no expert but I’ve been reading up on them , they say hardy and easy to keep etc and mention the right amount of flow and light also spot feeding helps apparently,
Certain fish pick on them which don’t help with growth , but then saying that ,..... that appeals to everything we try to grow in the tank don’t it so some info is basic knowledge just written differently,
I do like what you’re trying to do though and hope you can succeed , good luck and keep us posted how you get on with it ,
