Green Dragon Eye / Eagle Eye Zoanthid Colony
A Beautiful Large Colony of 400+ Polyps
We have just received a gorgeous rock of Zoanthids. The rock is approximately 8" x 6" and is completely covered in Zoanthids. This is a beautiful piece for a beginner or experienced reefer. This colony can be broken up into frags for resale and usually sell for $1 - $2 per polyp. That gives this colony a value of $400 or more, retail. Colonies of this size are a rare find.
These zoanthids will not change as far as color, but will spread onto sand or other live rock under the right conditions. Zoanthids can "morph" into other colors when placed together in close proximity.
All of our stock is sold as WYSIWYG Coral, meaning "What you see is what you get". Our pictures are of the actual coral you will receive; not stock photos or pictures of past stock. We pride ourselves on customer satisfaction, and you can rest assured that what you buy is exactly what you will receive. No bait-and-switches here, as done by some other sites... In the unlikely case that something were to change with your order, we will contact you with updated details to ensure that you would like to proceed.
About Zoanthids (Zoas, Polyps)
Zoanthids In Captivity
Reef Keeping Information
Zoanthids are a beautiful, easy to care for coral. They come in a variety of colors including fluorescent colors. Polyps can range anywhere from $1 per polyp to hundreds of dollars per polyp, depending upon rarity.
Zoanthids do not need to be fed directly. They obtain much of their nutritional requirements from their symbiotic zooxanthellae.
As a general rule all Zoanthids need medium to bright light. Pink Zoanthids require stronger lighting than other colors. A Zoanthids color will fade if exposed to too much light or if it does not receive enough light. If you are not sure of the exact light requirements for your Zoanthids, start by placing them at the bottom of your saltwater reef tank and slowly and gradually moving it closer towards the top of the tank over the period of a few days and monitor its progress.
Zoanthids are extremely toxic. They contain a neurotoxin which can be released when fragging or handling. Always wear protective goggles and gloves when handling any coral. Also, when fragging they have a tendency to "squirt" when cut, so be extra careful not to get these toxins in your eyes!
Zoanthids are categorized as "Soft Coral" or "Softies". Soft corals are the easiest coral to maintain due to their low lighting and water quality demands. They usually adapt to different light levels and water flow as long as the flow is not too strong. A few examples of "Softies" are Mushrooms, Zoanthids, Palythoas, Lemnalia, Toadstools, Xenia and Nephthea. These are great "beginner" coral; however, a popular favorite of experienced hobbyist!
