Zoanthid corals are common in importation and in aquaculture. You should have no trouble finding these available. They are considered to be quite hardy. Typically, they are forgiving of various lighting conditions, and enjoy moderate to strong water current. In nature, they are particularly fond of high light intensity, strong current, and prefer to be closer to shore.

Zoanthids have several different growth forms, sometimes in the same colony. They can be solitary polyps or grow in colonies. Their colonial forms can be connected by stolons (runners from their polys) or a coenenchyme. The coenenchyme is tissues that is both an anchor and sometimes stalk for the polyps. It is comprised of a connective tissue called mesoglea, which has a lot of empty space in its tissue. This tissue is what gives the coenenchyme its form, being simultaneously stiff and gelatinous. When polyps are embedded in the coenenchyme without a stalk, the colony is typically considered massive. When the polyps are at the end of stalk, which emerges either from a stolon or coenenchyme, the colony is considered “connected”. Like other Hexacorallia corals, some Zoanthid corals use bits of sediment in their coenenchyme for support.
