Ah, Latin Lovers! Arguably Joshporksandwich Zoas most famous morph! It took us awhile to get our hands on this piece, and boy are we glad to have one of our buddy's morph in the farm! Those vivid rainbow coloration are just so gorgeous along with such large juicy polyps.
JPS Latin Lovers 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!
Moderate, with noticable growth within the first month. Increased growth with feeding such as Benepets.
Prefers to be kept in lower to medium light. Lower light will result in larger polyps while higher light will result in more condensed colors.
Currently kept under Kessil 360x, all blue spectrum.
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.
