A sweet gem from California based reefing store Cali Kid. These zoanthids can get rather large polyps in the right settings. Although their body has a unique golden yellow coloration, their skirts are the real main attraction. The lashes have soft pink, green, and yellow hues, giving it a wild combination of colors. They also tend to get very long, a trait sought after in zoanthids.
In an established reef tank, CK Bitcoins will grow very well and generally aren't very demanding in their care requirements. They tend to grow a bit faster than other zoanthids in similar size, so give them a decent amount of rock work to cover.
CK Bitcoins Zoanthids 2p, WYSIWYG
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 decent 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.
