Featured Coral of the Week – 12/21/2015 ReefGen Superduperman Zoanthid



The AquaNerd featured coral of the week originated from a zoa colony collected by ReefGen, called the Superduperman Zoanthid.  These beautiful zoas are brightly colored, very hardy, and grow rapidly once established in the aquarium.  For optimum growth, the Superduperman Zoa  prefers moderate lighting and moderate water flow.  We went to the ReefGen site to locate a price but it appears their site is currently under construction, however we were able to find these for sale at Unique Corals.  For Eight to Ten polyps a nice frag sells for $34.00.

  • CARE LEVEL:  Intermediate
  • TEMPERAMENT: Semi-Aggressive
  • PLACEMENT: On rock-work or rubble
  • WATER MOVEMENT: Moderate
  • LIGHTING:  Moderate

HUSBANDRY NOTES: Unique Corals grows their zoas out under a combination of LED and T5 lighting with the fixtures placed about 22″ over the water surface.  Unique Corals occasionally feds their zoanthids with very fine frozen food mixes but this is not necessary to successfully grow this coral in captivity.
