Rare Zoanthids

Sunny Delight

It’s not often we find great yellow zoas in the hobby that are valued by collectors but one of the more recent zoas that popped up in the hobby has certainly caught many collectors’ attention.

Sunny Delight is a multi-colored zoa and it certainly is a ray of sunshine in a sea of colorful zoas. After getting through the purple stuff on the edge, you get to the yellow plate and the neon green core. My favorite is probably the light blue mouth on top of all the other complementary colors.

This zoa is currently highly sought after. If you have some for sale, please let us know and we can highlight your store on the right. If you have some to trade, please feel free to post your availability in the comments below.


Kaleidoscope is another one of the COOL rainbow zoas that can be found in the hobby today. This zoa has an amazing mix of colors and when you look at it, it either feels like you’re looking into a kaleidoscope or traveling at the speed of light to some point in the horizon.

However, if you notice the image below, a lot of the zoas look “normal” when view from afar. Most zoanthids do look amazing when seen up close or when taken with a macro lens. So it’s very possible your plain jane zoas will also look just as good when you take a pic of it with a macro lens.

Like the Candy Apple Reds, these zoas also have a green center with a colorful edge and skirt. However, unlike the Candy Reds, the green portion of the zoa is smaller and a bit more erratic than the other zoas.

If you like rainbow color zoas, then Candy Apple Reds is the zoanthid you need to add to your wishlist!

Even though the zoa is called Candy Apple Reds, the zoa’s primary plate color is green. Other characteristics include a white colored mouth, a colorful edge and a colorful, striped skirt.

This zoa closely resembles the Kaleidoscope morph and can sometimes be mistaken for them. Of course, both zoa would be great to add to your collection if you’re a collector that loves color.

The Georgia Peaches (or Nuclear Peaches) zoanthus is one of my favorites because it was one of the zoas I owned that not a lot of other people had. Even though I didn’t hype it up, I’ve always thought it was one of the best morphs in my collection.

Under MH lighting and actinics, the peach color really popped – to the point of radioactivity!

When I showed these pictures to the community, some have even suggested these zoas could be a morph of the rainbow zoas. What do you think? Are these more like rainbows or are they simply peachy?
