Star Polyp Frag - Pachyclavularia sp.
Star polyps are found in oceans around the world, but are commonly harvested from the Indo-Pacific. They 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.
Under the right conditions this species 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.
