LA Lakers Zoanthids

LA Lakers Zoanthids

LA Lakers Zoanthids, named after the basketball team, are loved for their all yellow coloration and bright blue center. These Zoanthids are a great way to add a punch of yellow coloration in any reef tank and are relatively easy to care for, with care and growth rate similar to the popular Zoanthid morph "Rastas." Their yellow coloration has a slight metallic hue allowing them to glow even brighter under reef tanks that prefer to run their lights with a more blue spectrum. Under white spectrums, their metallic golden-yellow becomes more of a true sunny-yellow and the blue center shines even brighter as is the case with most blue corals. 

  • Originator

    aliDreaminjC - 2007

  • Care Level

    Great beginner coral! Does not consume elements such as alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium readily. A great choice if you're looking to keep a low maintenance reef or are just getting into the hobby and haven't built a strong understanding of the hobby yet.

  • Growth Rate

    A great grower! Increased growth with feeding such as Benepets.

  • 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.
