The Star Polyp Green is a very good choice for beginner aquarists, since it is quite easy to handle and maintain. It features small star like green polyps and it encrusts the substrate as the purple mat. The Star Polyp Green is also commonly known as Starburst Polyps, Daisy Polyps and the more common Green Star Polyps. It thrives well in moderate to high lighting and water flows, along with temperature range of 75øF - 84øF, so that this balanced water parameters will even allow you to make your own GSP frags. You can safely keep the Star Polyp Green away from other corals, since it doesn?t have any offensive weapons other than claming territory by encrusting it. Therefore, a spacious room is required for it to grow properly, or else if it gets stung, then the poison will cause it to remain retracted and slowing their growth rates. It undergoes photosynthesis, and presence of zooxanthellae inside its tissue manufactures food and provides nutrition and energy to the Star Polyp Green. Avoid blasting them with power heads or they may stay retracted. The Star Polyp Green can easily propagate and grow easily in any tank. The Star Polyp Green benefits from the occasional bit of raw table shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp or silverside once a week. It can also be target fed with a turkey baster.
