Zoanthus is easy to maintain, making it a good choice for beginner reef aquarists. The Zoa Polyp requires moderate light levels combined with medium water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, the Zoa Polyp will also require the addition of iodine and other trace elements.
Under ideal conditions, the Zoa 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 Zoa Polyp contains the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae which satisfies almost all of its nutritional requirements. If the lighting is not optimal, the Zoa Polyp should be fed micro-plankton or baby brine shrimp.
