Nuclear Death Palythoa
Nice frag of these glowing green/yellow zoanthids. These grow fast and can be invasive if placed on other rocks so if you don't want them growing all over, keep them to their own section. First picture is of my colony.
These grow fast under any light, but really pop under strong blue lighting. Coloration will remain intense under higher lighting.
Pictures taken under ATI T5's.
8+ polyps Approx 1.25 inch frag plug
Coral Care Guidelines:
Zoanthids are generally easy to keep and make a great addition to a new or established aquarium. Our zoanthids are grown and kept under ATI T5 lighting, but will do well in a variety of lighting conditions. Most zoanthids and palythoa like med - high lighting, moderate to strong flow, and fairly stable water conditions. They can tolerate imperfect conditions and are one of the more forgiving corals to new aquarists mistakes. Zoanthids occur in a huge variety of colors; many reefers create gardens of them in their aquariums. All new coral additions should be dipped in CoralRX, Revive, Bayer, or a coral dip of your choice to help prevent introduction of pests into your closed reef system. As vendors we do our best to sell pest free products, but you should always dip regardless of who you purchase corals from.
These are our aquarium parameters:
Alkalinity 8.5 - 9.2
