Ah, one of the holy grails for many rare zoanthid keepers. GB Emperors V2 Zoanthids are sought after for their bright orange with black splatter combination, along with the infamous green accents on their skirt that classify them as a "rainbow maul." GB Emperor V2 Zoanthids have a more "flat" body shape compared to other rainbow mauls such as Flaming Mohican Zoanthids, and are a bit more sensitive to care for. This morph is best left only to the serious enthusiast with lots of experience caring for zoanthids or if you're up for a challenge! You'll be rewarded with one of the most sought after zoanthids in the hobby.

GB Emperor V2 Zoanthids

Polyp Count
  • Originator

    Golden Basket

  • 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 slow grower. Increased growth with feeding such as Benepets and liquid supplements.

  • Lighting Placement

    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.

  • 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.

    Benepets Coral Food.
