A very unique and rare protopaly. At a quick glance, these look just like the OG Purple Deaths. But when put next to a Purple Death, it's very clear that this piece is indeed blue! I would say that Blue Deaths are more of an indigo coloration, which is a shade of blue that is slightly purple tinted. Either way, you almost never find these anymore. They have proven to be slightly slower growing than Purple Deaths as well, so offerings of this morph are limited. However, their care level is just as easy! If you're looking for something different, this is a great choice.
Be sure to take care around this morph, as it belongs to the family of Protopalys. Protopaly zoanthids contain more zoatoxin than other species.
Blue Deaths Protopaly Zoanthids
Great beginner coral! Does not consume elements such as alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium readily. A great choice if you're looking to keep a low maintenance reef or are just getting into the hobby and haven't built a strong understanding of the hobby yet.
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.
