Zoanthids - A Wide Range to Choose From

By Bob Goemans

One of the favorite reef keeper corals is ‘zoanthids,’ which come in a variety of sizes and colors, besides being very hardy and easy to maintain. Their common names include Sea Mat, False Coral, Button Polyps, or Colonial Anemones. These so-called soft corals resemble miniature anemones, and can be solitary, connected by runners, or connected with soft tissue called ‘coenenchyme.’ Most often they form small encrusting mats or clusters of polyps and encrust hard substrates, living sponges or other sessile invertebrates. Actually, they are technically not soft corals, as more.

Q&A Letter Spotlight

Andrew Bentley writes to Bob about: Epoxy Putty

Bob: First I want to say that I have enjoyed reading your column in FAMA as well as your booklets...currently I'm reading your Marine Algae Control Secrets booklet. I have found it very informative and helpful. I have a question, specifically regarding the Two Little Fishies AquaStik epoxy putty. I have read where other aquarists use it to epoxy live rock, corals, etc. onto the side of glass aquariums. My question is how easy (if at all possible) is it to remove it from the glass at a later time? What I don't want to do is have a permanent fixture on the side of my aquarium! Any help more.
