Zoa Problems
 
Why do I have bigger species of Zoas Overtaking and blocking out the sun light from the smaller species that i originally bought? Is this normal? I never see it anywhere else.

Here are the pics...

:eek: you have sunlight in your tank? amazing how do you harness the sun in a room?

More surface area = more growth. The bigger ones are just outcompeting the smaller ones. Best bet is to try and frag a couple of the littler Eagle Eyes out from under the other ones. Either that or get rid of the bigger ones.

So there is no way to separate them from each other and start different groups?

And it's not sun light! It's LEDs and mh

look, its survival of the fittest, the smaller zoos on the bottom being overshadowed will grow its way around it or spread out to get more light exposure. i wouldn't worry. or if u really want to, take a sharp xacto knife and cut the smaller ones at the base and glue them somewhere else.
