T5 is usually the best

T5 work.
Led work.
Metal Halide Work.
Fluorescent work.

Different zoas and palys respond differently to different light.

The general approach is to start colonies on the bottom of the tank and move them up. Especially if the appear to be reaching for the light.

Good luck.

I was under the impression that their light requirements are about the same as other LPS.. lots of my friends use generic leds so they're not that picky

Have seen the same colony of zoas under all lights. I currently run LED and they do fine. They will do fine under most lights. All explosive growth I have seen usually is affiliated with a T5 fixture.

Iíve own high end LEDs and T5s and found that T5s are much better.

Tagging along. Surprised to see that T5s are favored over LEDS
