Pandora Palys (or palythoa) are a quick growing colorful addition to any tank. The face on the Pandora Palys is covered in bright speckling that can appear gold or orange with hints of green depending on the light. The bright pink skirts really set these apart from other zoa/paly strains.
Zoanthids are another perfect beginner coral. They are hardy and forgiving in most cases. Basic care will go a long way with these. Read more about taking care of these amazing corals on our Zoa Care Guide.
Zoanthids can be found in reefs all over the world. A lot of the ones we see in the aquarium trade will come from the Indo Pacific region though.
Low to medium par is a great level for most Zoanthids.
Zoanthids will get all or most of their nutrition from light. They can benefit from small food items such as phytoplankton, oyster eggs, or powdered foods.
Propagation of Zoanthids is common making aquaculture easy. Simple cut the mat (or stolon) between polyps and then cut the base rock the separated polyp is on to move it to a new location.
Acclimating any new additions is very important. Check out our detailed guide on how to acclimate coral here.
All of our coral pictures are taken under AI Hydra lights with an underwater camera. We take great care to showcase how every coral or anemone looks as accurately as possible.
Each and every animal is securely placed in 4 mil poly bags filled with the appropriate amount of water. From there the bags are placed into 1" insulated shipping containers to protect them from the elements and maintain consistent temperatures during transit. Heat and cold packs are also used if needed based on the destination weather.
All animals are shipped in corrugated 200 lb test boxes and shipped FedExPriority Overnight® to arrive at your doorstep the next day by noon (or by the end of day for some rural areas).
All orders are shipped via FedEx Priority Overnight® - the absolute best way to ship live animals. The day your order ships, you will receive an e-mail containing your FedEx tracking number. Someone must be available at the time of delivery to prevent livestock from being exposed to the rain and/or extreme temperatures. We recommend you hold at facility if possible, this is the best method for the animals.
Weather conditions may cause a delay in shipping out your package. We may have to delay your shipment in the event of storms or other adverse weather if we believe it is in the best interest of the animals. If this happens you will be notified immediately.
We will hold coral orders for a maximum of 2 weeks upon request. If you have to cancel your order there is a 20% cancellation fee or full store credit for 1 year.
eBay orders and purchases do not qualify for/towards free shipping.
