Palythoas are the larger of the zoanthid. While it can tolerate different ranges of lighting and flow, it will look its best in moderate lighting (PAR 100-250) and moderate flow. This species is aquacultured but originated in the indopacific around islands like Fiji, Tonga, Solomon Islands, and the Great Barrier Reef. When handling this coral make sure to check for open cuts that may be exposed to this coral or wear gloves and eyewear to avoid palytoxins (a neurotoxin that can cause irritant to the skin and in rare situations have deadly consequences).
All corals at K&P Aquaculture specified as aquacultured have been tank raised under Aquaillumination and Red Sea LEDs. Our parameters are kept relatively stable using dosing pumps distributing Calcium supplements in the morning and alkalinity supplements at night.
