ORA Orange Zoanthids
Owing to their small size, flower-like shape and endless variety of colors/patterns, zoanthids have always been extremely collectible. And no “zoa garden” is complete without these distinctive and highly desirable ORA Orange Zoanthids. This breathtaking zoanthid strain features intense orange tentacles with a yellow/greyish purple center. The color combination of the blotches in the center can vary considerably (even under different directions of lighting), ranging from nearly black and lime green, and so on. Many keepers love this strain’s long “skirt” of tentacles. It doesn’t require a super-powerful, expensive lighting system. Indeed, it is known to be easy to keep and very fast growing (and let’s just say that you’ll find no shortage of fellow hobbyists who will be happy to acquire your “extra” polyps). ORA Orange Zoanthids may be kept at any tank level under low-medium lighting with moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Orange Zoanthids
Because they are cultured in under aquarium conditions, captive-bred corals offer several advantages over wild-caught specimens. They tend to be more disease resistant, harbor fewer pests and are more capable of handling shipping/acclimation stress! By purchasing captive-bred zoas, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable.
