Star Polyps?


Recommended Posts

I have been looking for a new addition to my tank and I have found it, but I need to find out what its needs are before I find and buy one, and add it to my tank.


My new addition desire is to get some kind of Star Polyp for my tank.


I know all people have different opinions about caring for these polyps, but I have no Idea, so any opinion is a helpful one for me.


I just need to know what star polyps eat, what kind of lighting and in general how easy they are to care for. also the easiest type to care for(green star,ect.)

I have two different star polyps in my tank. One group is doing very well (but not exactly thriving), while the other group had a "hanging in there" look that seems to be getting better each day.


I like the unique color/shape of these corals, and am happy with them. Mine are placed high in the tank and near a powerhead. I think this is the optimum conditions for these, although I have heard some sources say they are more tolerant of lower light and water flow.

star polyps are great beginners corals. they will take a while to adjust to a tank, but within 1 week they should be out and flowing with the current. they're a truly a beautiful site to behold when you have a large colony swaying in the water :)
