One of Gonzo's Corals greatest zoanthids! He named this zoanthid after the incredibly refreshing Gatorade flavor, and what a great name since this morph does indeed look juicy and matches the color perfectly. The body of Gonzo's Citrus Coolers have a metallic sheen around the body. It resembled the family of "Vampire" zoanthids such as Sonic Flares, but with a unique golden-orange color. Polyps of this zoanthid can get curly under the right conditions.
Gonzo's Citrus Coolers Zoanthids
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 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.
