What are the most expensive zoanthids?
The grandmaster Krak zoanthid is by far one of the most expensive corals for its size.
How long do zoas take to open after fragging?
4. Within a few days the zoas will settle down and polyps will open, the coenenchyme will begin to form itself to the plug/rock, and within a few more days the new colony will be attached and beginning to send out new stolons. After a few weeks your new frag is ready for swapping or addition to your display aquarium.
How much par do zoanthids need?
As a general rule of thumb, corals require the following PAR levels: Soft Corals (zoanthids, palythoa, mushrooms and leathers): 50-150 PAR.
How fast do zoanthids grow?
Depends on the zoas I think. Most of mine grow at about a polyp every few weeks. However, I have a colony that is not invasive by nature but is growing about 1 polyp a day! It just all of the sudden started to go insane.
How do you glue zoas to rock?
Super glue gel works very well with zoanthids. I prefer to glue them out of the water. Take a small piece of rock and the zoanthids you want to glue, dab the rock and the bottom of the zoanthids with a paper towel, put a good sized drop of super glue on the rock and push the zoanthids into the glue.

Can you superglue ZOAS?
Super glue has an exothermic reaction with a lot of materials. Zoas or something on them may be on that list. The recommended process it to put a dab of glue on a plug, dip the plug in tank water to form a film on the top of the glue, then place the frag and then immediately put it in the water.
Can you grow ZOAS on sand?
Dependent on the zoa, they do have the ability to mat across the sand, although they don’t really bind to it like they would rock per say. Growth rates will however be slower than on the rock. Stick to rock and hard surfaces.
