Rainbow Echinata Frag

Rainbow Echinata Frag

WYSIWYG Rainbow Echinata Frag! This premium echinata variety has a violet base color with pink and green highlights and orange mouths. Acanthastrea echinata corals can range in any incredible combination of red, green, blue, orange purple and pink colors. Echinata colonies can add a beautiful structure to the reef aquarium due to its colonial growth habit.

In the wild, Acanthastrea echinata are found mostly in shallow, turbid water habitats to about 20m depth. They are often in protected areas like lagoons, forming colonies up to several meters across.

Acan corals are incredibly hardy and fast growing in the reef aquarium. They can tolerate a wide variety of conditions including both low and moderate lighting and moderate water currents. The Acan coral can handle a wide range of aquarium conditions, however it does best in an established reef aquarium with stable conditions.

The Acan Corals are voracious nocturnal predators and competitively extrude mesenterial filaments and digest organisms within reach. Due to their temperament, great care must be taken in determining the placement and distance between Lordhowensis colonies and other species of stony corals. Target feed minced mysis shrimp, enriched brine shrimp and smaller pieces of other meaty marine foods for best growth. The use of a quality protein skimmer helps maintain water quality and combat the effects of heavy feeding.

Feeding

Target feeding minced meaty foods and zooplankton for best growth and frag recovery time. The polyps of Micromussa lordhowensis are large and fleshy. At night acan polyps will extend long filaments which secrete enzymes searching for zooplankton and small invertebrates. Acan corals generally have large corallites with small teeth or lobes on their septa and have a well-developed columellae. Heavy feeding can have on effect on the aquarium water quality, so a quality protein skimmer.

Pink Mohawk Zoa Frag

Pink Mohawk Zoanthids

Pink Mohawk Zoas are the perfect addition to any zoa garden! The Pink Mohawk Zoas have a pink base color with a gold mouth, this cultivar has a darker center with bright, metallic, pink sparkles and pink lashes. This frag is WYSIWYG with 3 polyps. Zoas are very popular with both beginner hobbyists and rare coral collectors tracking down the uncommon color morphs.

Husbandry

In terms of care, both Zoanthids and Palythoa are fairly easy to keep. They tolerate a wide range of lighting intensities and water conditions. Once settled in, zoas multiply quickly. Zoanthids are unique due to how they incorporate sand and other small pieces of material into their tissue to help create their structure. In the wild, Zoanthids often occupy fringe environments (intertidal, back reef, other shallow areas, over dead corals), making them quite a hardy choice for the reef aquarist.

Zoanthids and Palythoa are found in corals reefs around the world. These polyps are harvested mainly from the islands of the Indopacific including Fiji, Tonga, Solomon Islands, and the Great Barrier Reef. Zoanthids and Palythoa have an incredible array of colors and patterns that make them one of the most popular corals in the reef aquarium hobby.

Lighting and Placement

Zoanthids require moderate water flow and low to moderate lighting (PAR 100-250) to maintain their color. T5’s, Metal Halides, or LED’s can all grow Zoanthids and Palythoa when the proper PAR levels are provided. For continued good health, they will also require the addition of iodine and other trace elements to the water. Zoas 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 provide some of their nutritional requirements. They will also benefit from additional feedings of micro-plankton or brine shrimp given to each individual of the colony.

Toxin

Some Zoanthids and Palythoa contain a powerful neurotoxin called palytoxin in its flesh that can be extremely harmful if it comes in contact with your blood stream. By harmful we mean deadly. Take special care handling these polyps for this reason especially if you have open cuts on your hands.
