You will receive 3 pieces with at least 25 polyps each. The Zoanthid are colonial type corals, which means each coral is a colony of separate polyps living together. They are extremely hardy and excellent beginner corals. Zoanthids are the most beautiful and stunning colored corals in the marine aquarium. It is the perfect choice for the novice aquarists. Most of it hosts the symbiotic Zooxanthellae in their tissue, which creates food and provides nutrition to it. The Zoanthid will thrive in all type of marine lighting, because of this the Zoanthid makes a very good addition to any first time reefers tank. They grow really fast and its propagation is really easy to do. It should be attached at the bottom of the tank and are relatively easy to care. It can thrive well in moderate lighting and water flow. Being bright and colorful in appearance, the Zoanthid makes an indisputably stunning centerpiece in any aquarium. It is also recommended to keep these under true actinic lighting. Also, most of the Zoanthids shows stinging behavior which tends to shoot poison darts on prey. Due to the photosynthesis process, the Zoanthid do not need any additional supplements.
These exceptional zoathinds will be our choice of colonies of at least 25 polyps. They may come on a single rock or multiple pieces in a variety of colors and polyp size depending on available inventory. An exceptional value. Zooanthids are extremely hardy and an excellent beginner coral. They can spread rapidly so care must be taken to ensure they donít choke out other corals.Zooanthids are photosynthetic and donít need special feeding.Zooanthids prefer low to moderate water motion.Does well within a range of at least 76ļ to 84ļ F.Will tolerate very low light levels, but do better with stronger lighting.Often referred to as "Zoos" Button Polyps are very easy to care for and great foreveryone from beginner to expert. They grow and spread very quickly and can beeasily propagated.Corals are part of a biological group known as Cnidaria. Most Cnidaria have a mouth,or mouths, that opens into one big body cavity. Due to the lack of a true digestivesystem, this cavity acts in its place and after the food is broken down thenutrients are then sent through the rest of the body as food. There is also noexcretory system; therefore the waste is sent back through the mouth or secretedinto the surrounding water.Tentacles of varying size will usually surround the mouth of Cnidaria. Most Cnidariahave tentacles with stinging cells that can shoot tiny poison darts into their preyor can even be used as a defense mechanism. Some corals lack tentacles and insteadcover themselves with a thin layer of mucus and use that to collect bacteria andplankton as food. Some corals even use both of these methods. Cnidaria can either bean individual animal or members of a complex colony. These "Colony Corals" share thefood and nutrients taken in by each individual.Corals have tiny living organisms that actually live in their tissue. These arecalled zooxanthellae and they are the reason why such strong lighting is needed inthe saltwater aquarium. These algae-like creatures provide the coral with oxygen andother nutrients that are produced during photosynthesis. During this process, thezooxanthellae take up carbon dioxide and provide nutrients to the coral.
