Another gorgeous part of the "Hornet" family! Frozen Hornets do not have alternating skirts, but they do have the classic hornet "ring." The skirts have a bright yellow-gold tip. The ring is yellow-white in coloration, surrounding the infamous icy-blue center that the morph is named after.
They stay rather small for zoanthids and as such require a bit more care than your usual "easier" morphs. An established reef tank is recommended along with prior zoanthid experience. They will have a slow start to growing, but will take off once established and happy in their new environment.

World Wide Corals
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!
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.
