One of the original rainbow zonathids in the hobby! JF Insane Rainbows Zoanthids came out around the same time as Sunny Ds, which is a very similar looking morph. It's very easy to get the two mixed up, and the tell-tale sign is in the skirt. JF Insane Rainbows have a more refined skirt with a bit of white on it, while Sunny Ds have a lot of metallic speckling in the skirt. Sunny D zoanthids also don't usually get red coloration on the body like JF Insane Rainbows do. The body of a JF Insane Rainbow also tends to look more "plump" while Sunny Ds are more "flat." They are both great growers and relatively easy to care for, although we've noticed that JF Insane Rainbows are a bit slower growing then Sunny Ds but are more resilient to parameter swings.
The last photo shows what a Sunny D Zoanthid looks like, which helps show the more "speckling" trait on the skirt and lack of red.
JF Insane Rainbows Zoanthids
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.
Brightwell's Amino Acids, Lugols, Replenish, Restor, Potassion, KoralColor.
