polyps

I want to get some Polyps. But I am getting confused. Which has the bigger head Palythoas or Zoanthids? Or are they the same?
Thanks

They are really close to the same, but i like zoas because they come in a prettyer variety then palys IMO.

yes, zoos tend to be more colorful and they are also the smaller of the two.

however palys can come in nice colorations, like purple death and nuclear greens (but are more costly)

Palys defiantley get bigger than Zoas, and have a complete different "style", if you know what I mean. They can really add a nice touch in a pack of zoas.

yea, they also seem to have a bigger "skirt" going around the outer edge of it and also seem to be on a longer "stem" as zoos seem to be closer to the rock, if that makes sense.
