The Zoos - Assorted Mixed Colors Coral Polyps are great choices to keep in an aquarium. It makes a great choice for any tank as it imparts a beautiful splash of vivid colors to your tank under actinic lighting. The Zoos - Assorted Mixed Colors Coral is hardy and makes a good choice for any beginner aquarist. It thrives really well in a tank with optimal water and temperature conditions. The Zoos - Assorted Mixed Colors Coral is very easy to propagate. Also, it is very easy to care for and can be successfully housed in a variety of reef aquarium setups. The Zoos - Assorted Mixed Colors Coral requires bright light and moderate flow. It undergoes photosynthesis and manufactures food using light and with the help of symbiotic algae present inside the tissues, such as zooxanthellae. It is easy to keep the Zoos - Assorted Mixed Colors Coral, making it a very good choice for a beginner aquarist. The Zoos - Assorted Mixed Colors Coral also needs proper lighting, good water movement, and regular feeding for its continued good health. It can be kept safely with fish and number of other invertebrates. Most Zoanthid have tentacles (which they use as their defensive system) and show stinging behavior. It doesn?t have an excretory system and therefore expels out the waste food into the water. The Zoanthid share the foods and nutrients taken in by each individual. It is recommended to place the Zoos - Assorted Mixed Colors Coral in a lower position on the reef and move it up once it gets acclimatized to the aquarium. With low to moderate water motion, the Zoanthid survives within a range of 72 to 84 degree Fahrenheit.

Image is a representation. Super Mixed Colors zoanthid is a zoanthid rock with at least two different colors. Zooanthids are extremely hardy and an excellent beginner coral. They can spreadrapidly so care must be taken to ensure they don?t choke out other corals.Zooanthids are photosynthetic and don?t need special feeding.Zooanthids prefer low to moderate water motion.Does well within a range of at least 76 to 84 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.
