    I received a very very small frag of a Green Star Polyp [Picture Left] and I want it to grow so it has a nice hill-like look such as the picture on the right. In order to do this... Do i need to take the star polyp off the frag base and put it on a nice round rock and wait for it to spread...

    First reef tank - 30 gallons Hey guys! I have an algae issue and I'd like your advice, but let me first tell you about my tank. (Question/pictures at the bottom) I had a friend that kinda walked me through the setup and got me started with live sand and live rock, along with some RO/DI water...

    I think someone here said that GSP are like a "litmus test" or "Canary in the coal mine" indicator of the conditions in one's reef tank. This, of course, should not be considered a substitute for continuous testing, but... As my first purchase I bought 4 mushrooms (which are doing well also)...

    My gsp's have turned an ugly brown.. There is a little bright green on random stalks... But for the most part it's brown.. When new heads grown they are bright green but as they get longer turn brown. What's the reason & how do I fix it? Any help would be appreciated. Thx

    does anyone know when the green star polyps(gsp) take over an area, if you place a live rock on top of the gsp, will it try to grow on it or only grow over what's in front of it's path? Im trying to grow a large area of gsp and then place DT live rock over(on top) them. Also if anyone have...

    I lost power due to storms Friday night for about 12 hours. I'm in week one of a new protein skimmer break-in period. I ran two aerators and almost everyone seemed to come out okay. Among my corals, I have a kenyan tree, buttons, zoas, mushrooms and xenias - they are all none the worse for the...

    I have some new GSP that was doing excellent for the first month after i brought it home. It has now been closed for the past 2 weeks. Yesterday i saw two of the polyps open but barely. It has a lot of brown small strings coming from it. It also has two very small white stocks with 6 little...

    This is my GSP growth over a one week period. In the first there is an obvious gap where the ceramic disk shows through, in the second picture taken just 7 days later, the gap is completely closed and nearly completely filled in. The third picture was taken the next day showing how it looks...

    The LFS said GSP, but I'm not so sure. I'm leaning toward an encrusting gorgonian.

    Whenever I feed my tank my GSP "clenches" it's tentacles, is this normal? My LFS told me to feed it phyto-feast but then I asked TRT and you all said to not feed him and that he would get all his nutrition from zooxanthellae providing through photosynthesis. I was putting phyto-feast in...

    Hey guys, Im having some problems with this coral and I was wondering if I could get some help/advice. This coral now is starting to get some bare spots on the mat. But what's confusing me is that there is some growth still happening. Also some of the polyp heads are turning brown. I have a...

    I just bought a small amount of gsp today. It has been in my tank for about 3 hours and it is still not opening. I'm just wondering if it is normal or how long it might take to open.
  20. General Reef Discussion
    OK my GSP haven't opened for a week. Everything else has been good other than my Power Compact ballast died two days ago but the polyps were closed before that. I also have a small frag of that colony in my fragtank and that is opening, so I'm not sure I dipped it in melafix last night but if...
