"Zoanthus can multiply quickly! "
The Zoanthus crust anemone is usually very undemanding and tolerates the water values for quite a time which are not within the perfect range. You can keep these corals both in large marine aquarium as well as in nano tanks. The water temperature should not be above 26°C. With aquarium inhabitants Zoanthus normally copes up very easily. The intensity of lighting should vary as per the colour of the coral. Light crust anemones should be lighted strongly as dark colour. LED-lights are best suited to bring out the ideal colour spectrum of Zoanthus.\n
Feeding the Zoanthus crust anemones:
Crust anemones feeds with the help of zooxanthellae (Symbiotic algae), so it does not need to be fed actively. If you wish you can also supplement the feed with e.g. Nyos Reef Pepper. Distribute the feed easily in the aquarium. A specific feed through a pipette is thus ideal.\n
Multiplication of Zoanthus
Zoanthus has the advantage that it multiplies very rapidly. Its requirements are thus very simple. Maintain the water parameters slightly high so that Zoanthus corals quickly form bigger colonies. We recommend Nyos Absolute Aminos to support growth support and promote bright coral colours. To deal with this coral species carefully, you would want to form frags. Lots of crust anemones have a highly-effective poison Palytoxin. Zoanthus are poisonous, however it should not pose a hazard if handled properly. With Palythoa/Protopalythoa corals one should be careful since these produce a lot more poison than Zoanthus.\n
