The Pinwheel Zoa, scientifically known as Zoanthus sp., is a captivating and highly sought-after zoanthid coral species that adds a burst of mesmerizing colors to reef aquariums. With its striking pinwheel-like patterns and vibrant hues, the Pinwheel Zoa is a true gem that will elevate the visual appeal of your reef tank.


The Pinwheel Zoa displays a captivating combination of bright colors, typically including shades of orange, pink, purple, green, and blue. Its polyps form intricate and mesmerizing pinwheel-like patterns, creating a visually stunning and dynamic display. They typically grow in colonies, covering the live rock or substrate with their vibrant presence.


Known for their ease of care and adaptability, Pinwheel Zoas are suitable for both beginner and experienced reef keepers. They thrive in stable reef aquariums with consistent water parameters and moderate lighting. Placing them on live rock or the substrate with ample water flow allows them to flourish and form stunning colonies.


Feeding the Pinwheel Zoa is relatively simple, as they are primarily photosynthetic and receive much of their nutrition from light. They also benefit from occasional supplemental feedings of marine-based coral food or liquid plankton to promote their growth and enhance their colors.
