OVERVIEW

Zoanthid polyps come in every color in the rainbow with several different colors usually present in any polyp.  Because of the wide color range available, some tanks are dedicated to zoanthids.

They are easy to care for corals that are a good choice for beginner hobbyists.  Provided with moderate lighting and moderate water flow, they will usually do well in most reef tanks.

Zoanthids will take small meaty foods, but it is not necessary to feed them.

Under some conditions, they may become invasive and encroach on other corals.  Their growth should be monitored and pruned if necessary.  Keeping them isolated to a rock island or similar is one way to control their growth.

Photo Notes We want you to be happy with the coral that you receive and we take pride in the corals that we offer.  To provide true representation of the color and health for our WYSIWYG corals, they are photographed and white balanced under the ReefCorner LED lighting at approximately a 10K to 14K white point to best show the actual color of the coral. The coloration may vary when viewed under different lighting.  The grid the coral is typically photographed on is approximately 0.6" per square to give you a size reference.
Naming Notes We identify the scientific name when we are able to with some degree of accuracy. You will notice that we don’t give our corals cool names like “AWESOME ULTRA SUPER METALLIC NEON RED AND SCREAMING LIME GREEN ULTRA ULTRA COLORED AUSSIE” unless it is a name in common usage in the hobby that helps to identify the coral. We let our pictures do the talking and you can be the judge of whether our corals are awesome or not.
