The "Sunny D" Zoanthus is one of the most popular Zoanthus among saltwater aquarists. That's no surprise when you see the bright green and orange colors that are even visible under daylight. Even the tentacles seem to sparkle.
You will receive a frag with at least 3 polyps. The frag has a size of approx. 2 cm.

Zoanthus colonies consist of a number of small polyps. They are flat growing and can gradually cover rock and soil like crusts. The palette of colors and patterns within Zoanthus is almost unlimited - a must-have for coral collectors. When naming the Zoanthus, it is common in the reef hobby to use fancy names like "Red Magicians". There is still a lack of clarity about scientifically correct species identification.
Zoanthus are grateful corals in reef tanks
Zoanthus have few requirements and can adapt to a wide range of light intensities. Slowly adjust your Zoanthus to intense light, because too low lighting is always better tolerated than too high. Nevertheless, even very colorful species show the best colors and growth under strong lighting. Choose the intensity of flow so that no sediments can deposit on the Zoanthus.
How do I place Zoanthus in the aquarium?
We deliver our corals fixed on a frag plug. You can either attach the plug in your reef structure or you can glue it with coral- or super glue to the desired position. The frag plugs have a small stem, which can be easily cut off with pliers if it is disturbing.
