WWC Flaming Sun Zoanthids, WYSIWYG Coral

WWC Flaming Sun Zoanthids, WYSIWYG Coral

Rating is 0.0 out of five stars based on reviews

1st photo is of the WYSIWYG coral on a standard 3/4" Alternative Reef frag plug. 


Founded and named by World Wide Corals (WWC), this Zoanthid has a dark purple-blue body, bright yellow center, and fiery orange skirts. The color combination makes the name "Flaming Sun" very appropriate, as it looks like a small sun in the center of the polyp is surrounded by flames. 


WWC Flaming Zoanthids are a rather uncommon Zoanthid morph in the hobby and we don't know many other vendors, including World Wide Corals, offering this piece anymore. We first purchased a frag of this Zoanthid from World Wide Coral's eBay auctions many years ago, with the first few polyps growing very slowly. It was only recently that their growth has begun to take off after being acclimated to our systems. 


WWC Flaming Sun Zoanthids are relatively easy and hardy polyps to care for. This morph has been conditioned to aquarium life and aquacultured for many years and will do well in most systems, including those new to the hobby. 

  • Originator

    World Wide 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 moderate growing Zoanthid coral morph. Will take some time to acclimate to your system before growing extra polyps.

    Feeding coral foods is encouraged if your systems are low in nutrients (See "Supplements" for our current coral food choices.

  • 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.
