Tips on keeping Zoanthids
looking to get a Zoanthids. could anyone give me any tips on feeding, lighting etc?
They don't require target feeding, just trace elements, marine snow, phytoplankton, and food for filter feeders will insure their good health. As for lighting. what do you currently have ?
cool thanks. I have one t5 bulb and 1 flouresent bulb.
What's the length and wattage of the bulb. Given you have a T5 bulb you should be OK. Is the other bulb an actinic (blue) bulb ?
its 22" the other is blue yeah, also hava purple kinda colour one? would you recomment both being t5?
T5 refers to tube diameter. The K (kelvin) rating is the most important. Aquarium light fixtures white light is 6500K - 10000K. This is the color rating you corals need. The blue lights are just for looks, not much function. Look on the bulb to find out the K rating.
ok nice one, thanks v much for you help
I have a 10,000k and true blue actinic 3 light, is that considered good lighting for anemones?
The easiest way to tell if you anemone is not getting enough light is, they start bleaching (turning white).
so would you say mine needs more light by the way it looks?
is it possible to keep an anemone with mixed clowns, or not a good idea?
Yes it looks bleached. Small frequent feeding will help him. Anemones should have High output (HO) T5 or Metal Halide lights. Yes anemone will live for a while under powercompact fluorescent lights, they just won't thrive under them.
I feed him at least 3 times a week with krill and I also was told to feed them with smorgasbord 2 times a week.sound good to you?
This sounds fine. I was looking at photos of my anemone and noticed it looks whiter in the photos and greener in real life. Maybe your is the same ?
could be because his tenticles are bluish green, looks really pretty!!!
