Assorted Polyp Frag - Small
Polyps are found in oceans around the world, but are commonly harvested from the Indo-Pacific. They are low maintenance and make ideal beginner corals for new aquarists.
These polyps are found in various forms and colors. Typically, their polyps are white, brown, or metallic green in coloration. Some polyps will even have prominent "eyes" of white or green. These are attractive in the aquarium due to their color and their encrusting nature. Each individual polyp has a diameter of less than one quarter of an inch, but colonies can grow to cover any surface.
Under the right conditions, these polyps may grow quickly and may be invasive to other corals. However, providing amble room between corals in the aquarium should prevent them from becoming too invasive. Invertebrate food such as MicroVert, Marine Snow, or Cyclop-eeze are recommended on an occasional basis.

Neon bright and beautiful choice for coral propagation!
by Aaron B.
Picked out one of these little colonies while in the store, and even after ignoring a regular feeding schedule, it has gained about 10 additional polyps from the 15 or so it started with. The colony is the brightest and boldest coral in my 15 year old 46 gallon bow front display tank.
