Zoanthids

If you ever want something to trade, this is the thing others want. Green Zoanthids - Zoanthus sp. - are sought after, as well as any other brightly colored type. They spread quietly, and will attach to anything -- rock, gravel, a powerhead, tonga branch... using your imagination you can make a real showpiece with this soft coral. After handling, wash your hands well as they do contain palytoxin, or wear gloves. Mine were fragged three times and continued to propagate nicely.  These got the nickname "Mean Greens" by a friend of mine.
