Similar in body shape to LA Lakers and Oxides but with a stunning bright red body and solid blue mouth! This zoanthid isn't exactly the same as the original Safecrackers (which was named by a hobbyist that was an actual safe cracker by profession!), but the original strain is extremely difficult to track down. The similarties between Safecrackers 2.0 and the original is that the older Saferackers has a much thicker blue band around the center. In Safecrackers 2.0, the blue is mostly an accent on the skirt instead of being a large ring.
The last photo shows what the original Safecrackers look like, which we unfortunately do not have anymore. The similarties between the two are there, but they are also very different zoanthids. Safecrackers 2.0's red is a much more vibrant and true red. It's also a much easier zoanthid to keep and grow!
LC Safecrackers 2.0 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.
