Zoanthids, also known as zoas, are a type of soft coral that can be found in many different colors and patterns. They are a popular choice for aquarium enthusiasts due to their unique appearance and ease of care. However, like all living creatures, they require proper care to thrive in an aquarium environment. Here are some tips on how to keep zoanthids in your aquarium.

  1. Water Parameters Maintaining stable and appropriate water parameters is crucial for the health of zoanthids. The ideal water temperature for zoanthids is between 72 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit (22 and 26 degrees Celsius). The pH level should be between 8.1 and 8.4, and the salinity should be between 1.023 and 1.026.

  2. Lighting Zoanthids require moderate to high lighting levels, as they rely on photosynthesis to survive. LED lights are a popular choice for aquariums and provide the appropriate lighting for zoanthids. However, it is important to avoid direct sunlight on the aquarium as it can cause the water temperature to rise and lead to an increase in algae growth.

  3. Water Flow Zoanthids require moderate water flow to help bring nutrients and oxygen to their polyps. However, excessive water flow can damage their delicate polyps. It is recommended to have a gentle water flow, which can be achieved through the use of powerheads or wavemakers.

  4. Feeding Zoanthids are photosynthetic and do not require regular feeding. However, they will benefit from occasional feeding with zooplankton or small pieces of shrimp or other meaty foods. It is important not to overfeed them, as this can lead to increased nutrient levels in the water, which can cause algae growth and harm the zoanthids.

  5. Placement Zoanthids should be placed in the aquarium on a hard surface, such as a rock or piece of coral. They can be attached using aquarium glue or placed in a crevice where they can anchor themselves. It is important to give them enough space to grow, as they can quickly spread and overtake other corals in the aquarium.

  6. Water Changes Regular water changes are important for the health of all aquarium inhabitants, including zoanthids. It is recommended to do a 10-20% water change every 1-2 weeks to help maintain stable water parameters and remove excess nutrients from the water.

In conclusion, zoanthids are a beautiful and easy-to-care-for coral that can be a great addition to any aquarium. By following these tips for proper care, you can ensure that your zoanthids thrive in their aquarium environment.
