Havent spot fed them, they just seem pretty happy and are generally growing well. That said there is definitely variation in how quick some of them are expanding. Most of them on frag plaugs went in at similar times at similar sizes. The scrambled eggs, pink zippers and watermelons all have gone really well but the utter chaos, rastas and one of the tangerones are certainly.slower (almost as if each one were a complex organism with its own specific needs and requirements rather than a simple one size fits all lol)

I’ve started a similar approach. I find that the plugs are pushed out by bristleworms though but overall going well. Recently had aiptasia outbreak, but hope my peppermints that I added this weekend will sort it

Like what you’re doing so far , growth might depend on what one is getting more light , as I mentioned I’m not an expert on zoas so relying on help from people on here and a little bit of research online
, someone will probably say different but that’s fine all a learning curve if not kept them before like myself ,

Went to lfs to have a look at zoas to see what they had for me floating rock design and ended up buying this instead .
Main reasons  for purchase was plenty of branches that I can frag and make me tank look a bit more fuller and now thinking of floating hammer rock idea , so many ideas
For the floating rock thing  :umhum: :umhum: :umhum:
Got a couple more hermits to as I do love these cheeky little buggers ,

Hi rattas , how’s things mate , all good I hope , I’ve been looking online and no one has done a floating hammer rock , instead of fragging my new one might buy some small frags and give it a go ,
Is it safe to have hammer and zoa together ?

Yeah its all good mate, settled into my new place now and slowly setting up the tank. I'm getting close to ripping out the hard plumbing and just going with a couple of soft hoses at the moment just to get the thing live!

Yeah dont frag that, its gorgeous. Depending on the growth of it anyway you might have to if one or two of the branches gets a bit too heavy.
The Zoa will most likely get stung in that exchange.

Thanks:
