Found in tropical coral reef ecosystems across the planet, Zoanthid are the hippy cousin of the sea anemone, just smaller and stickier.
Why, these corals are psychedelic / They’re photosynthetic / They’re symbiotic / Why, they’re Reef Lightning!
Found in tropical coral reef ecosystems across the planet, Zoanthid are the hippy cousin of the sea anemone, just smaller and stickier. Sure, they may not have a skeletal structure, but this helps the Zoanthid to reach its full potential. Holding the title of the fastest growing corals in the world, some types of Zoanthid can grow five or six polyps at a time and spread like wildfire. True sun-worshippers, these eye-catching animals host symbiotic zooxanthelitic algae that whips up a nourishing feast through photosynthesis.
Zoanthids come in a kaleidoscope of colours, transforming the reef into a trippy wonderland. Many species live in harmony with sea sponges and other animals, forming a groovy underwater commune.
