One of the holy grails of zoanthids. The colors on this piece are incredible and bright! Small yellow speckles adorn the face of this morph, giving it a unique flair. A must have for any serious zoanthid collector.

SBB Hephaestus Zoanthids 1p, WYSIWYG

  • Originator

    Shane Backer

  • Care Level

    Fairly difficult. Very sensitive to parameter swings. Best for experienced reefers with 1+ year of success keeping intermediate level zoanthids.

  • Growth Rate

    A slow 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.

    Benepets Coral Food.
