CB King Jawbreakers Zoanthids 2p, WYSWIYG
WYSIWYG frag is on a 3/4" standard Alternative Reef frag plug.
CB King Jawbreaker Zoanthids are a beautiful and unique zoanthid morph, with a clean pattern and a pop of color from the orange ring. CB King Jawbreaker zoanthids are a bit on the smaller size when it comes to polyps, but this is a typical trait for most "Jawbreaker" types of Zoanthids. When we first received these zoanthids, it took awhile for them to adjust in our frag tanks. The original frag that we purchased took a almost 6 months to settle down before it began to produce any new polyps, but this might be due to us bringing it home after a few days from Reef-A-Palooza Florida. Even then, the amount of polyps the original frag produced was very slow.
After the original plug was fragged, the new frags completely took off! Polyp growth became much more noticeable, nothing like the original frag's growth rate. This is most likely because the new frags were grown in our tank, and the fragging signaled them to focus on growing. Hopefully the frag you purchase will go through the same growing pains as ours, but if so don't lose hope as it will eventually establish itself and grow.
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 slow grower at first. Once established with a few polyps, the growth speed will increase. 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.
