One of the original named zoanthids in the hobby! This morph used to be extremely sought after by many hobbyist for its beautiful purple coloration and soft blue-grey skirts. Although not as sought after as it used to be, it's become a rarity in the hobby due to its moderate to slow growth. When kept next to Nuclear Green Deaths, the colors have been known to fuse!
Be sure to take care around this morph, as it belongs to the family of Protopalys. Protopaly zoanthids contain more zoatoxin than other species.

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.
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.
