This variety features large polyps that superficially look similar to the standard Hawaiian Palythoas. But put these under blue lights and they erupt in a rainbow of colors. The face is covered with a galaxy of bright yellow and orange, fading out to a ring of orange to red at the edge. The mouth is bright green. Each tentacle in the skirt is striped with a breen or pink fluorescence like the face. When they close, the outer surface of the polyps is covered with jagged lightnight stripes in bright fluorescent green.
Overall, just one of the coolest new patterns we’ve come across in a long time. A true rainbow deserving of the name.
Like all zoas and palys, these like plenty of nutrients, and will thrive in a wide variety of light and flow levels.
The frag you purchase will come from the same lineage as the image shown, but because of natural variation among frags yours may not look identical to this image. Because of their large size, this variety typically has just 2-3 polyps per frag.

Opened very quickly, the first ones to do so after arriving. I like the color a lot.
