Why are Zoanthids So Expensive? The Zoanthid Debate

My FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/coralfish12g In this coralfish12g video I am going to be talking about the great Zoanthid debate. There are always fads in the hobby and right now one of the biggest is the selling, trading, buying, and collecting of rare Zoanthids. Some people are sick of other hobbyists creating rare sounding names to match barely different color variations. They don’t understand this craze for Zoas with special names. Others love that aspect of Zoanthids becoming collectors who can sell them to create additional revenue from their reef aquariums. So what do YOU think about this debate?

From clams to chalices and even maxi mini anemones, it seems like they all go through a lot of initial hype then slowly decline in popularity.

Zoas and palys are highly favored in the hobby by both beginner and expert reefers alike.

They don’t necessarily need to be target fed like other corals and they also do not require us to dose things like calcium.

Large Zoanthid Colonies Needed

In recent Reef Threads podcasts Christine and I have discussed the unique beauty of soft-coral aquariums and how they should be viewed with more enthusiasm by hobbyists. As part of our discussions we’ve talked about how uncommon it is to see decent-sized zoanthid colonies. Most zoanthid collectors tend to have a lot of small clusters on frag plugs rather than mature colonies that play a notable role in their overall coralscapes.… More:
