A small but beautiful zoanthid With their ocean blue body, slight green tint, and multitude of small glitters, these have become one of our most popular zoanthid morphs to date. Their polyps tend to stay on the smaller side but luckily their growth rate isn't terribly slow. However, their polyps do grow very close to each other, making fragging sessions a bit tricky. As such, they are only offered once every few months.
These zoanthids should be given low light to start for the first month and eventually transitioned to a spot with a "medium" amount of lighting and flow. The increase in light will help "condense" the size of the polyp and bring out the blues and glittery pattern.
LC Stardusts 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 decent grower! Increased growth with feeding such as Benepets.
Prefers to be kept in lower to medium light. This morph will do well in a wide range of lighting placement. Lower light will make the polyps larger, but higher light will bring the yellow, orange, and pinks out on the skirts more.
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.
