Care Level for Zoanthids
Ease of Care: Moderate. While many Zoanthids are hardy, proper attention is needed, especially regarding placement and potential aggressiveness from neighboring corals.
Lighting: Moderate. Zoanthids can tolerate a variety of light intensities, but they generally thrive under moderate lighting conditions.
Water Flow: Moderate. They benefit from a consistent flow that aids in nutrient exchange and keeps detritus from settling on them, but the current should not be too forceful.
Water Parameters: Stability is crucial. Aim for salinity between 1.023 to 1.025 specific gravity, pH ranging from 8.1 to 8.4, and temperatures between 75°F and 79°F. Consistent monitoring and maintenance of alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium levels are also vital.
Dietary Needs: Zoanthids primarily rely on photosynthesis for their nutritional needs, but they can benefit from direct feeding of zooplankton and other suitable foods.
Recommended Foods: Zooplankton, phytoplankton, and certain brand-name coral foods are recommended.
Feeding Frequency: If direct feeding is chosen, doing so once a week can be beneficial. Observe their reaction to feeding and adjust the frequency as required.
