This came in as a hitchhiker on live rock that we spotted and grew out because of its bright yellow skirt. It turned out to be an interesting morph, earning a permanent spot in our collection.
The face is black, with a pale mouth. The skirt is screaming bright fluorescent yellow with just a hint of green. Not quite the true golden yellow of King Midas or LA Lakers but almost – and brighter than either one. The black and yellow pattern is especially eye-catching when it grows out to a colony, especially placed as a contrast to break up fields of lighter colored zoas.
Like all zoanthids, these like plenty of nutrients, and will thrive in a wide variety of light and flow levels. In our tank these prefer moderate (not low) light.
The frag you purchase will come from the same lineage as the image shown, and will have at least 3-5 polyps, but because of natural variation among frags yours may not look identical to this image.
