The Yellow Polyps may grow rapidly and has a bright yellow gold body color which makes it a gorgeous and brilliant addition to any reef tank. These are non-venomous but are semi aggressive in nature. The Yellow Polyps show symbiotic relation with zooxanthellae, which is a type of algae. This alga hides and seeks shelter in the Yellow Polyps coral and undergoes photosynthesis. Due to photosynthesis this alga provides oxygen and nutrients to the coral. Therefore, it needs an intermediate water flow and lighting condition in the aquarium. The Yellow Polyps are relatively easy to maintain and grows easily if the proper water parameters are met. The Yellow Polyps might get consumed by Aiptasia eating animals like Peppermint Shrimp due to similarity between it. The Yellow Polyps are mainly collected from the regions of Indonesia. The Yellow Polyps are soft corals and also known as yellow polyps. Each polyp is individual and does not connect in any way. They have long tentacles and also have thin long stalks as compared to other polyps. The Yellow Polyps can be easily propagated and are very easy to grow without the need of any special requirement. It does well within the temperature range of at least 72 to 84 degrees. The Yellow Polyps are a great and terrific addition to any reef tank, and it propagates in the tank quite easily.
I had been wanting one for a while, and am glad I ordered it. It has well over 30 heads, and adds a nice pop of color, and opened up immediately.

Simply a beautiful specimen. The color is truly more rich that what's pictured. What more can I say? This coral is a must have.

Bright yellow with zooxanthellae and long tentacles.Zooanthids are extremely hardy and an excellent beginner coral. They can spreadrapidly so care must be taken to ensure they donít choke out other corals.Zooanthids are photosynthetic and donít need special feeding.Zooanthids prefer low to moderate water motion.Does well within a range of at least 76ļ to 84ļ F.Will tolerate very low light levels, but do better with stronger lighting.Often referred to as "Zoos" Button Polyps are very easy to care for and great foreveryone from beginner to expert. They grow and spread very quickly and can beeasily propagated.Corals are part of a biological group known as Cnidaria. Most Cnidaria have a mouth,or mouths, that opens into one big body cavity. Due to the lack of a true digestivesystem, this cavity acts in its place and after the food is broken down thenutrients are then sent through the rest of the body as food. There is also noexcretory system; therefore the waste is sent back through the mouth or secretedinto the surrounding water.Tentacles of varying size will usually surround the mouth of Cnidaria. Most Cnidariahave tentacles with stinging cells that can shoot tiny poison darts into their preyor can even be used as a defense mechanism. Some corals lack tentacles and insteadcover themselves with a thin layer of mucus and use that to collect bacteria andplankton as food. Some corals even use both of these methods. Cnidaria can either beanindividual animal or members of a complex colony. These "Colony Corals" share thefood and nutrients taken in by each individual.Corals have tiny living organisms that actually live in their tissue. These arecalled zooxanthellae and they are the reason why such strong lighting is needed inthe saltwater aquarium. These algae-like creatures provide the coral with oxygen andother nutrients that are produced during photosynthesis. During this process, thezooxanthellae take up carbon dioxide and provide nutrients to the coral.
