I am just curious, are the zoos sent as loose polyps or mounted?

I think most people prefer that they be mounted on at least something small. I find it near impossible to glue a zoo polyp down so it will stay without it sliming it's way out. I've heard running fishing line through it's base and tieing it down is a good method for mounting loose polyps, but I've never tried it.

you can see how I do it in the pic above. I mount by rubber banding them to rubble and letting them sit. I like mounting to branching rubble.

what size frags are we donig here? I can make small frags for many people or larger frags for 2 or 3 people.... lets decide on a size that everyone would be happy with (or maybe depending on the morph and the partner)

Were going with a minumum of 5 polyps. Once I pair everyone up, you can decide with your partner if you want to do bigger pieces.

I think "brown zoos" is a little too vague. as long as they're not all brown, I think that its cool. it's not easy to find zoos w/ no brown on them in some areas

I would agree with that although I was planning on sending really colorful zo's in my swap i.e. eagle eyes, fire and ice, peach eyes, etc., so it would be nice to get something nice and colorful back. I think if get the opportunity to decide from some options with the people we've paired up with then if they have brown in them and we decide on that, that's cool. Am I interpreting this wrong? I was thinking we could maybe select or at least let the people we trade with know what we have to trade and they would do the same, or was this going to be a complete surprise in the swap? Either way, I'm cool with it but I'll probably give my partners some choices if they would like. Let me know what you all think.

- Karen

yes, maybe saying no brown zoo's is a little vague. some of my favorites have some brown in them. I guess what we are trying to say is no ugly/dull zoo's. only trade something that you would like to get in return.

True, no total browns I think is what we are trying to say. Those Pic's of the blue centers are fine by me.

I've bought some zoo's from Ahenson and got some great looking zoo's from him. I'd trade with him again but I think this time around, I'd like to give others a chance at his wares and trade with someone else. He's got some nice eagle eye's that I got along with some others tri color zoo's that are awsome. Thanks for the zoo's Andy.

The one's that were sold as eagle eyes that I have are slow growers, matter of fact, I don't think they have any new growth since I got them a few months back. I did get some that look like the eagle eyes but are a different color w/ gray bodys. Some are growing fast, others are medium growth. But they all look good.

Mine seem to grow at what I would consider a very fast rate...5 plus polyps per month. I actually moved 2 other colors to make room for them!

I have seen Stixbaraca's EE's and they are different than mine, basically the same, but longer skirts, tighter growing polyps too. I am amazed at how fast his grow! (under PCs too) I only wish....
