A gorgeous variant of Candy Apple Reds Zoanthids! This strain has colors that are much more vibrant compared to the more matte/metallic colors of regular Candy Apple Reds. The body also exhibits specks of yellow with beautiful green tips on the lashes. This zoanthid is a great choice who is looking for something a bit faster growing than Bowsers, but want more "oomph" than regular Candy Apple Reds.
LC Extreme Candy Apple Zoanthids 2p, WYSIWYG
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 and liquid supplements.
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.
