     Fire and Ice Zoas (Zoanthus sp.) are a beautiful species of Zoanthid that have brilliant steel blue and red coloration. With its easiness to care and feed, it is a good choice for beginner reef aquarists. Many of them caught from deeper locations on the reef. The environment of deep reef species is often difficult to completely reproduce in the aquarium environment. However, in the case of Fire and Ice Zoas many hobbyists have had good success by placing them lower in the aquarium in a location that receives strong but filtered lighting.

    Fire and Ice Zoas also tend to do better when kept at more moderate water temperatures ranging from 72° to 76° F. These conditions are recommended as a good starting point when first introducing this species to the reef aquarium. Given time and gradual adjustments, hobbyists should be able to identify the ideal location in which to keep Fire and Ice Zoas in their reef aquarium. Also, it requires moderate light levels combined with medium water movement within the aquarium.
