Rare Zoanthids

Incredible Hulk

With the recent launch of the second Incredible Hulk movie, it’s only fair that I start the zoanthid catalog process with the Incredible Hulk zoas.  Zoanthids morph under all kinds of conditions including but not limited to lighting, water currents, and placement in the tank so it’s very possible for similar zoa morphs to be labeled with a number of names.

I’ve seen the Incredible Hulk zoa labeled as Luck of the Irish and even as Green Crossettes on CoralPedia.  The main things that distinguish these zoanthids from others are the brown skirts, the deep green plate and what appears to be a lighter green vein coming out of the zoa mouth.  Under strong MH lighting, the lighter colors really pop in the tank.

The Incredible Hulk zoa is one of the hardier morphs that can grow under high lighting or be kept in the shade.  The patch I had in my tank spread pretty easily without dedicated feedings and if you are a beginner looking for some color to add to your tank, green is a great place to start.

If you have additional pictures of this coral, please send them to us and we will update this post.
