YR Peachy Blues Zoanthids 1p, WYSIWYG
1st frag is of the WYSIWYG Coral on a 3/4" standard Alternative Reef frag plug, 2nd photo is an example of a grown out piece.
Dang are these zoanthids bright! The name for these guys are due to their main colors: peach and blue. The blue is actually a gorgeous metallic teal with some of the brightest orange skirts we've seen in a zoanthid. These start off as slow growers, but will start to take off once a few more polyps are grown.
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.
