Overview

Energize your reef aquariums with a "POP" of brilliant color. These ultra-colored zoa add a dynamic combination of complementary colors to wake up lack-luster setups with stimulating color and texture. The Ultra Colored Colony Polyp is a prized coral specimen for serious Zoanthid collector and budding reef aquarium enthusiast alike. Over time, an established colony of Ultra Colored Colony Polyp will create a living carpet of color for an exceptional display.

The Ultra Colored Colony Polyp is a spectacular color variety of Zoanthus Colony Polyp Corals (also known as Sea Mats, or Button Polyps). As colonial animals, the Ultra Colored Colony Micro Polyp is made up of multiple individual polyps attached to a piece of live rock. The Ultra Colored 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 Ultra Colored 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 Ultra Colored Colony Polyp is easy to maintain, making it a good choice for beginner reef aquarists. The Ultra Colored Colony Polyp requires moderate light levels combined with medium water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, the Ultra Colored Colony Polyp will also require the addition of iodine and other trace elements.

Under ideal conditions, the Ultra Colored 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 Ultra Colored Colony Polyp contains the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae which satisfies almost all of its nutritional requirements. If the lighting is not optimal, the Ultra Colored 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.
