If there ever was a zoanthid morph that we'd consider black, it's these little guys. This morph stays rather small in size, similar to another zoanthid morph called Emeralds on Fire. The center is a bright orange with a contrasting green ring and skirt tips. When Travis of Planet Zoa first released these, we were extremely excited to receive them. We haven't come across a "black" zoanthid before, and these are still the closest to black we've ever come across.


PZ Prometheans are very rare to come across in the hobby, dating as far back as 2013. We hardly know anyone that still has them aside from the customers that purchase the few frags we offer. Luckily they're not too difficult to keep, but do require a little bit of attention due to their smaller polyp size.

PZ Prometheans Zoanthids 2p, WYSIWYG

  • Originator

    Travis of Planet Zoa

  • Care Level

    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! 

  • Growth Rate

    A decent grower! Increased growth with feeding such as Benepets.

  • Lighting Placement

    Prefers to be kept in lower to medium lighting. 

    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.

    Benepets Coral Food.
