One of the "rainbow" zoanthids varieties! This zoanthid was named after its skirts, which can get very long and curly under the right conditions, making it look similar to the Greek gorgon herself. The skirts have a soft green speckling followed by a blue ring. The body of the UC Medusa is a pastel green with small black "tick tock" marks similar to a clock and a faint pink ring. 


The polyps of UC Medusas can get fairly large and its relatively easy to keep as well! Because of its ease of care along with large polyp size, its slowly become a favorite among zoanthid collectors. 

UC Medusas Zoanthids

Polyp Count
  • Originator

    Ultra Corals

  • 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 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.
