ECC Burning Embers Zoanthids

ECC Burning Embers Zoanthids

One of the brightest zoanthids in the entire farm. Their intensely bright orange polyps can be seen across the room. Topped off with a stunning yellow and green tipped skirts and you have yourself a winner! These were originally seen at Reefstock Colorado and known as VN Hypotonics, but were aquacultured and made more readily available by Eye Catching Corals. The name Burning Embers was given to them by ECC and is the name that most vendors that purchase go by now. 


Stock frags are made to order. Healing time is about 1-2 weeks.

  • Originator

    Eye Catching Corals

  • Care Level

    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! 

  • Growth Rate

    A moderate grower. Increased growth with feeding such as Benepets.

  • Lighting Placement

    Prefers to be kept in lower to medium light. This morph will do well in a wide range of lighting placement. Lower light will make the polyps larger, but higher light will bring the yellow, orange, and pinks out on the skirts more.

    Currently kept under Kessil 360x, all blue spectrum.

  • Flow Strength

    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.

  • Supplements

    Brightwell's Amino Acids, Lugols, Replenish, Restor, Potassion, KoralColor.
