These zoanthids may be small, but what they lack in size they more than make up for in color! The centers of these are a HOT pink and the skirts are a beautiful metallic orange. These zoanthids are best suited for those who have experience with zoanthids already, since their small size make them a bit more challenging to keep. We've found KH Sunbursts to do best under lower to medium lighting and once they grow into a mini-colony of about 10 polyps, give them a bit more flow. Since they're small, detritus settling on them will irritate them more so than larger polyps.
KH Sunbursts 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.
