overview
Celebrate the green and gold in your home aquarium! Just like its namesake, this winning Zoanthus Colony Polyp is a crowd-roaring touchdown in your showcase reef display. The center coloration of bright yellow is ringed with a contrasting blue surrounded by rich green tentacles. The colonial nature of the polyp corals creates an impressive flush of color that is visually stimulating yet pleasantly harmonious. Over time, an established colony of Green Bay Packer Zoanthus Colony Polyp will create an impressive living carpet of color reminiscent of a field of underwater wildflowers.

The Zoanthus Colony Polyp Corals are also referred to as Sea Mats, or Button Polyps. Their most common color is green, but they are also found in many other bright colors. They are colonial animals with multiple individual polyps attached to a piece of live rock.

These polyps have the ability to sting other polyps or corals. While the sting is not strong, they are semi-aggressive and need to have space between their colony and any neighbors since they tend to crowd them out. Zoanthus Colony Polyp Corals are easy to maintain, making them a good choice for beginner reef aquarists. They require a moderate light level combined with medium water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, they will also require the addition of iodine and other trace elements to the water.

The Green Bay Packer Zoanthus Colony Polyp will reproduce easily in the reef aquarium by budding (splitting off a portion of their base or mouth) to increase the size of the colony. The Green Bay Packer Colony Polyp contains the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae which satisfies almost all of their nutritional requirements. If the lighting is not optimal, the Green Bay Packer Zoanthus Colony Polyp should be fed micro-plankton or baby brine shrimp.

It is common to receive a rock that is not completely covered in polyps. However, under the right conditions, they will quickly spread across this and surrounding rocks in the aquarium.

Approximate Purchase Size: 2" to 3-1/4"
