Overview

The ORA® Orange Colony Polyp are colonial animals with several individual polyps that are referred to as Sea Mats or Zoas. Their 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 as they can grow up the bases of LPS and SPS corals when fully established.

Zoanthids are unique in that they incorporate sand and other small pieces of material into their tissue to help create their structure. In the wild, Zoanthids often occupy fringe environments (intertidal, back reef, other shallow areas, over dead corals), making them quite a hardy choice for the reef aquarist.

They will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, T-5s, powerful LEDs and up to the more intense metal halides. Colony Polyps will satisfy the majority of their nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. While it may not require additional food to maintain its health in the reef aquarium, these frags will feed on micro-plankton or foods designed for filter-feeding invertebrates. The ORA Orange Colony Polyps are attached to an argonite plug and can be easily placed in holes or between the rockwork of the reef aquarium.

They contain the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae, which provide some of their nutritional requirements. They will also benefit from additional feedings of: micro-plankton or brine shrimp given to each individual of the colony.
