    Hi all, Help and advice please. Had my small 7/8g tank up and running since November, added a decent size GSP about 3 weeks ago, was open in the store and for the first day in the tank, but then closed tight and not opened since. Initially located on the bed and as I say opened for the first...

    Alright I am freaking out right now! I just decided to do a little fiddling around with my Greed Star Polyp and I moved it to a new location in the tank. In doing that, I obviously touched the coral on the top and bottom and I was too stupid to wear gloves ;-; I have been doing some reading...

    Was wondering what these clear tentacles are, they almost look worm like but then they pop back in their hole. They were the first ones to come out when i got this coral and then the green tentacles came out a few hours after.

    I bought a frag of Green Star Polyp from the LFS and drip acclimated for about 5 hours. It's been a day since that and it still wont open up. I tried giving it similar flow to what it had and the store. I chose this frag because I havnt had any luck with corals yet in my tank and would love to...

    Hi, I'm looking for advice on zoas and green star polyps. I know some people grow them like weeds, but mine always seem to slowly fade away over weeks to months. I'll put a colony in the tank and they slowly shrink away. I just started with 2 new ones and I want them to make it. I have a...

    So, I read an old thread about this very same problem, but the user deleted his image (so I can't tell if we have the same thing) + the experienced users always need pictures (case by case analysis). previous thread.... "I can't see what you are talking about very clearly. It could be a...

    Hello all, Been a while since I've been here. I've gotten a lot of help here and appreciate it. Long story short - I've got my tank in a nice groove. I have a calcium reactor dialed in, parameters have been stable. I have an apex controller. Phos- virtually zero (hanna checker) Nitrates -...
  11. "Soft" corals
    I've had green star polyps before (before the emerald crab got it, that is) and it's been on the typical purple mat. A friend picked up a piece for me from a mutual friend (head of a reef club) and it looks a little different - I get that there are variations, but it's also on a white mat....????

    Ok, so I put together a 3g bow front w/ custom w/d sump/overflow and crazy flow for my daughter's 7th bday. LR, live sand, damsel and mandarin goby. I bumped the flow head on my 14g BC last week and haven't seen the small green-star polyps out since. I read up on flow sensitivity today and...

    Since converting my 28 Gallon system to a 10 Gallon system my tank has shown improvements oddly enough. I have kept the water changes to 10%, using the same salt, feeding the fish the same and use the same lights. Oddly enough the corals are doing better. I wouldn’t expect this since im...

    Hi I'm new to the reef tank, and I'm having a problem with my gsp. I have had it for a little over a month and now it's not looking so well. It came covered over a piece of lr. And now the purple mat is starting to turn brown and disintegrate. Most of it still opens up and all the other corals...

    I found these at my local LFS, I know they are green star polyps but what kind/species are they? :confused: I've researched all over Google but all I can find is purple mat star polyps. These have a somewhat fleshy mat. Thanks in advance!:jump3:

    I'm thinking of buying a coral off craigslist that is being sold as a GSP but I'm not entirely sure if it really is one. Whatcha think?
