A beautiful and old school morph that you probably won't find in many reefers tanks. With its soft pink center with white splashes, it makes for a handsome little zoanthids. The skirts are a metallic red-orange color. This morph is very similar to KH Sunbursts Zoanthids, but the pattern in the center looks like it's "exploding," while the pink in KH Sunbursts Zoanthids is more of a solid pink.
Bleeding Hearts are believed to have originated in Taiwan and the polyp sizes are small. Keep this morph in lower to medium light since the polyp sizes are small and be sure to give it ample flow to prevent any detritus from building up on it.
Bleeding Hearts Zoanthids
Best tried after you've had success with a few other easier corals first and have an understanding of basic reef chemistry such as keeping salinity, alkalinity, calicium, and magnesium levels consistent. The coral itself is very easy to care for if you test for your parameters often and have created a consistent maintanence routine for your reef!
A moderate grower. Increased growth with feeding such as Benepets.
Prefers to be kept in lower to medium light.
Currently kept under Kessil A360X units. Mounting height 24" above water line. 12:00PM - 10:00PM at 100% blue intensity.
We recommend starting smaller zoanthid frags in lower flow until it reaches a small colony size. Once established, increase the flow level to avoid any detritus building up in between the mat. If detritus builds up inside the matting of the zoanthid, it can cause bacterial issues.
Currently kept with Maxspect Gyre 350s Pumps.
