OG Circus Zoanthids 4p, WYSIWYG Coral

1st photo is of the WYSIWYG coral on a standard 3/4" Alternative Reef frag plug.


OG Circus Zoanthids are a morph that originated in the Bay Area of California, by a reefer named Ryan Dean. They are similar to the more common Blondies zoanthid morph, but with a different yellow hued coloration. The center of the mouth is a light blue-teal and the skirts are a fiery orange-red. This is a great zoanthid to purchase if you're just starting the hobby, as it has great coloration and is easy to care for.

  • Originator

    Ryan Dean

  • 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.

  • Supplements

    Brightwell's Amino Acids, Lugols, Replenish, Restor, Potassion, KoralColor.
