This variety has medium polyps with a striking pattern. The face is dark, almost black under white lights and deep purple under blues. The mouth stands out as a bright spot – shining almost blue under blue lights and white under daylight. The skirt has subtle pink and green tips.
Not the brightest zoa in your collection, but the contrast makes it absolutely eye-catching.
Like all zoanthids, 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. This variety typically has 2-3 polyps per frag.
