Overview

The Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp injects invigorating color to reef aquariums. Like first light warming up the morning sky, the Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp adds soothing shades of orange and red coloration that awaken the senses. This noteworthy color morph is a welcomed addition for serious Zoanthid collectors as well as budding reef aquarium hobbyists.

The Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp sports rich , rust-colored tentacles that provide a handsome backdrop for the sunny orange plates. A steel blue ring around the orange center keeps the bright coloration from being too "precious." The repeating, colonial nature of the Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp adds further balance for a harmonious presentation. Over time, an established colony of Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp will create a living tapestry that fills your reef aquarium with the perfect amount of color.

The Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp is a spectacular color variety of Zoanthus Colony Polyp Corals (also known as Sea Mats, or Button Polyps). As colonial animals, the Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp is made up of multiple individual polyps attached to a piece of live rock.

The Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp has the ability to sting other polyps or corals. While the sting is not strong, be sure to provide sufficient space between the Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp and other corals because of its semi-aggressive temperament and potential to crowd out neighbors.

Similar to other Zoanthus Colony Polyp Corals, the Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp is easy to maintain, making it a good choice for beginner reef aquarists. The Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp requires moderate light levels combined with medium water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, the Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp will also require the addition of iodine and other trace elements.

Under ideal conditions, the Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp will multiply without difficulty in home reef aquariums by budding (splitting off a portion of their base or mouth) to increase the size of the colony. The Sunrise Supernova Colony Polyp contains the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae which satisfies almost all of its nutritional requirements. If the lighting is not optimal, the Sunrise Supernova 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.
