The Star Polyp, Briareum sp., is a polyped coral that usually comes in brown, tan, green, connected by a rubbery colored mat. When placed together, large colonies can create a dense carpet across rock and substrate. Growth is likely in home aquariums. The Star Polyp requires tanks with moderate lighting but may develop more intense colors under intense lighting, moderate waterflow, and mid to high placement. Please keep them some distance away from other corals to prevent their tentacles from harming other corals at night. They feed photosynthetically and require no supplemental feedings. This particular specimen comes as a frag.
I ordered and expected a 'frag' of this... I got a fist sized rock absolutely covered! Saltwaterfish.com, you forever have my service!
I acclimated and placed it mid level in my tank, and within minutes polyps were opening. By the end of the night, every single one was open. Such a fun splash of color, a must have.
A great addition to my tank. These are fluorescent green and a nice addition to the tank. They took a while to open up, but are pretty cool. The picture on the page is accurate, but a super close up picture. Expect slightly different look in your tank.
Very pleased with my order...I was very surprised in the amount of polyps for the price. Great value! They started opening the day after I placed them into my tank which is a really good sign and each day more and more appear.
