Clove Daisy Polyp
Daisy Polyps were only recently classified as Knopia octocontacanalis.
They are related to Clove Polyps (Clavularia sp.), Star Polyps (Pachyclavularia sp.) and Waving Hand Polyps (Anthelia sp.).
They have eight fan-like tentacles at the end of each polyp and grow from an encrusting base.
Daisy Polyps receive most of their nutrients through photosynthesis of the zooxanthallae algae in its tissue, but will benefit from supplemental planktonic food.
They should be kept under moderate to high lighting. Water flow can range from low to moderately high.
These polyps can spread to cover a surface and may compete with other passive corals for save but can be stung and damaged by aggressive corals.
Be sure to place the polyps to allow room for growth and spreading.
