Live Corals: Zoanthid Polyps

 
   

Also called Zoa's, Zoo's, Polyping Corals, Zoanthids and Palythoas (bigger brother to the zoanthid) are colonial type corals which means each coral is a colony of seperate corals living together. Extremely hardy and an excellent beginner coral. They will survive in almost any type of reef tank. They will tolerate very low light levels. Prefering low to moderate water motion, they do well within a range of 76º to 84º F. Since Zoanthids are photosynthetic, they survive with no feeding, but occasional feeding of small meaty foods like brine shrimp is beneficial and will result in faster growth. Since they are not very light demanding, they are great filler corals to place between larger specimens. Easily propagated by cutting individual polyps from the main colonies, pieces can be placed on a gravel bed with low water flow and will attach themselves to pieces of gravel, or, they can then be superglued to a suitable substrate such as a reef plug.

How do you see all the amazing colors? To see the amazing true colors of the zoanathus and protopalythoa polyp corals as they are photographed and meant to be seen, they need to be viewed under true Actinic lighting. Reef tanks with Normal daylight 10,000, 14,000 and even 20,000 Kelvin daylight aquarium lighting ,even when supplemented with some actinic lighting, will not see the true colors, and for this reason we are not able to guarantee the colors you will see. Just remember, that for relaxed evening viewing , turn off all daylight lighting and view only with Actinic lighting, this way you will get give you the best view. Just remember, that during the daytime when not viewing your reef tank, use your daylight lighting for optimal growth.

Zoanthids (order Zoantharia also called Zoanthidea or Zoanthiniaria) are an order of cnidarians commonly found in coral reefs, the deep sea and many other marine environments around the world. These animals come in a variety of different colonizing formations and in numerous colors. They can be found as individual polyps, attached by a fleshy stolon or a mat that can be created from small pieces of sediment, sand and rock.

Important Note: All of the Japanese Deepwater Zoanthids are temperamental after fragging and transport. Multiple customers have had these closed up for days to as much as two weeks after they arrive. We've witnessed this ourselve's just moving them from tank to tank within a 2 hour period. Customers also report the same quite often. We tell you this, not to be afraid but to be patient, Deepwater Zoa's are hearty in the sense that they don't die. They just don't like to be bothered and you can expect them to not be open for a while after you get them into your tank.

Keds Red PPE's are colonial animals with several individual polyps attached to a piece of live rock or coral rubble. Polyps are unique in that they use sand and other substrate material into their tissue to help create their actual structure. For the beginner or advanced reef keeper, PPE's are a great choice, they are quite hardy. Easy to maintain, Palythoa Polyps called PPE's require a medium light level combined with a medium water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, they will also require the addition of iodine and other trace elements to the water. They will reproduce easily in the reef aquarium by budding (splitting off a portion of their base or mouth), which will increase the size of their colony. They contain the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae which provides some of their nutritional requirements. They will also benefit from additional feedings of microplankton or brine shrimp given to each individual of the colony.

African Blue Hornet's

Similar to the purple hornet zoanthids, the blue hornet is another zoa with very distinctive patterns and vivid colors. While the purple hornet sports a purple mouth and purple plate, the blue hornet sports a blue plate with a blue mouth. Blue Hornets are found in the Indian Ocean off of the coast of Africa and thus have been harder to collect than corals found on other coasts. While these zoas also look similar to the Blue Eyed Dragon, it does share more similarities with the Purple Hornet by having the same color ring and skirt. These are not aquacultured polyps, they are frags from actual African colonies. This is the color you will see under 140K Metal Halide lighting. For the beginner or advanced reef keeper, Palythoa Polyps called PPE's require a medium light level combined with a medium water movement within the aquarium.

Metallic Green Star Polyps

Metalic green star polyps and all other star polyps are extremely hardy and can survive most reef tank conditions.They will tolerate fairly low light levels, but tend to develop brighter colors under brighter lighting. They prefer moderate water motion. They do well within a wide range of temperature from as low as 72º to as high as 84º F. Not very aggressive but they have an encrusting growth pattern, which can lead to encroachment on its neighbors. Green Star polyps are photosynthetic and require no feeding. They can be placed most anywhere in the tank as they tolerate a wide range of water flow and light. I would avoid high flow areas though. A great beginner coral for propagation. Green Star polyps are easily propagated by cutting a section of the purple mat from the main colony using scissors and attached to a piece of live rock with a rubber band. After a few days the rubber band can be removed.

They will also benefit from additional feedings of microplankton or brine shrimp given to each individual of the colony.

Clove Polyps
Clove Polyps are a quite hardy species that will thrive in most aquarium conditions, and propagate well under appropriate conditions. They will spread clove polyps to nearby rocks or other solid items. This can be quite rewarding for beginning and experienced marine aquarists alike. All Clove Polyp Soft Corals are good additions to both large and miniature reef aquariums and can make nice displays when they encrust live rock. They require only a moderate water flow and a moderate amount of lighting, making them ideal for placement at most any level of the aquarium. However, if lighting levels are high, placement should be in the lower levels. They normally do well in areas of moderate to strong lighting and water motion. These corals are photosynthetic, it is not necessary to feed them, but they will also feed on particulates suspended in the water. 

  Lavender Clove Polyp
Clavularia sp.

Description: Clove Polyp, Clavularia sp,also known as Encrusting Polyp, is
a hardy coral , that does well in most reef aquariums.
Clove Polyps wave beautifully in the current. It is a great choice for aquarists of all experience levels. Each clove polyp has eight-tentacled "blooms". Members of the
Clavularia species require only a moderate water flow and a
moderate amount of lighting, making them ideal for placement
at most any level of the aquarium.
They will grow and reproduce by budding, when provided with the proper environment.
Placement: Place polyps along the bottom half of the aquarium on an exposed rock. Make sure that currents will be able to supply them with necessary nutrients and trace elements. Leave several inches between them and other specimens, as they will usually expand their colony and can be stung by other corals. Because the polyp tentacles may be stung by nearby corals, specimens should be kept an adequate distance from other corals. The picture above is a representative of the species, but no two corals are alike.
Diet and Feeding: Although symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae hosted within them supply most of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis they do require supplemental feedings. Supplementing their diet with the addition of trace elements, marine snow, phytoplankton, and food for filter feeders will help to insure their continued good health.

   Green Dot Daisy Polyp

Description: Daisy Polyps, also referred to as Starburst, or Eight Tentacle Polyps. They are very easy to keep and grow quickly. They vary in color form tan to green and white. Polyps are very hardy and can recover from the most adverse condition. This is an excellent beginner coral. It's an excellent coral for the money because grows so quickly to create a lush coral reef by spreading over rock work. It grows like a mat of grass, so if it gets too large, simply trim with a razor. If desired, you can relocate the trimmings to another spot. It can even be directed to grow up the back side of a glass in a tank making a beautiful back drop.

 Sympodium

 Very Rare!! Blue Sympodium Frags
Sympodium sp.

Description: The colors are absolutely stunning and this is the first coral we have ever seen that looks much better under T-5 HO lighting than Metal Halide. Sympodium is an interesting encrusting soft coral which is just beginning to show up in some coral shipments. Not to be confused with the “Blue Clove” polyps that became much more widely available in the last couple of years, Sympodium is related to Xenia but it does not pulse and it has much smaller polyps. This is a fast growing coral, more colorful than other Xeniids, with contrasting stalks and polyps; some color varieties have green or blue polyps and red tentacles (pinnules) or blue stalks with blue polyps and green tentacles. Others seem to be monochrome, but still brightly colored. They seem to do adapt well to any lighting, and prefer moderate current. Their stalks branch, much like Xenia corals.

The intense blue and green color of our aquacultured Sympodium coral is beyond compare in soft corals. The coral is growing on a 1" frag chip with many small buds. This coral is easy to keep and usually thrives in most tank conditions and lighting even those tanks were conditions are not always ideal.

Feeding: Because of their particular feeding habits, it isn’t necessary to directly feed Sympodium corals. The zooxanthellae provide nutrients via photosynthesis, and the polyps will absorb dissolved organic matter directly from the water.

Care Level: Easy

 Pipe Organ Coral

 Bright Green Flowering Pipe Organ 
Tubipora species

Description:This species is a soft coral but with a hard skeleton of calcium carbonate that contains many organ pipe-like tubes. On each tube is a series of polyps which each have eight feather-like tentacles. These tentacles are usually extended during the day, but will swiftly retreat with any sort of disturbance. The skeleton is a bright red color, but is obscured by the numerous polyps, which are green or gray in color. They are restricted to shallow waters and tend to live in sheltered areas.They eat plankton.Do not target feed this coral. Add a quality phytoplankton to the water column.This coral can be placed directly on the sand and should have moderate water flow. 
Feeding: The coral's feathery polyp tentacles help it catch food suspended in water. They appreciate food of smaller particle size, but shouldn't be target. Oyster eggs and other such small particle foods are recommended.

Lighting : Though adaptable, these corals prefer more intense lighting. Ideal lighting will depend on the depth and clarity of the water at which the coral was collected or cultured. As always, please acclimate to new lighting conditions.

Water flow: Moderate to strong water flow is important for effective feeding and to prevent sediment damage.

Placement: Pipe organ corals are not aggressive. Provide enough space for the coral polyps to extend without inhibition. Polyps can reach up to a foot in height when fully grown and fully extended.

 WE WANT YOUR CORALS TO GROW - NOT JUST STAY ALIVE
Why Phytoplankton:
Phytoplankton is very important to marine life. It is the primary producers in the ocean. Crucial to the development and survival of most, if not all marine animals . But what is phytoplankton? It is just a fancy word for tiny floating plants (such as diatoms and dinoflagellates), which serve the same role in the food chains of the oceans as grass and shrubs serve on land; namely small things eat them. Many coral reef animals feed directly on phytoplankton. Some essential nutrients provided by phytoplankton cannot be synthesized by animals, and therefore are extremely important components of a healthy diet.
