These Palys are very easy to care for and keep their strong colour under a range of light intensities becoming a lighter green in high lighting and a darker green in lower lighting.

These Palys have unusually large polyps and multiply readily by forming buds which grow into new polyps extending the mat of palys as they do so. They feed readily on a variety of foods.

This Paly is a very strong solid green colour that fluoresces under bluer lighting.

Frags will be 4 to 6 polyps mounted on a fragstone.

How long we've kept this coral: 22 years.


  • As they can grow rapidly allow space around them to avoid them overwhelming slower growing corals.
  • As with all zoanthids the mucus they produce can be toxic so be sure to wear gloves or wash your hands thoroughly after handling them.

      Arrived as promised this morning still warm! Which is a great achievement considering the distance they travelled, in beautiful condition and a rich green colour. One of a number of Corals I purchased, all of which arrived in great condition with some of the best packaging I have come across to date!

        Vibrant green colour

        What a beauty, such a great addition to our tank. Was so well packaged that it opened up as I took it out, and now one month later makes all our friends comment, especially at feeding times when it grabs passing food. Can't wait to shop for more from Captive Ocean. Thanks for the exceptional service.

            16 polyps plus buds! Stunning fluorescent green colours and real big heads. This was my first order and am already planning the next.
