Zoanthid polyps are one of the collector's items of the reef trade. Many different color varieties and combinations exist and are sought after within the trade. They are easy to frag and can spread to cover a surface rapidly under the proper conditions.



Zoanthid polyps' requirements can vary depending on the variety. More brightly colored colonies can require higher light than more subdued polyps. All are also filter feeders and can be target-fed with meaty foods like zooplankton and baby brine shrimp. They should have moderate flow to carry food to and waste away from the polyps.



Zoanthid polyps secrete a toxin known as "palytoxin". This substance is known as one of the most powerful and dangerous toxins in nature, but a reaction beyond a mild skin rash is very rare. Avoid coming into contact with Zoanthid polyps for prolonged periods or with any open cuts or wounds; the use of gloves when handling your polyps is recommended.
