Clove Polyp

Qty: - +
   - OR -   

Clove Polyps (Clavularia sp.) have eight fan-like tentacles flowering from the end of each stalk. The stalks grow from a base encrusting over a hard surface.

They are usually white or green and the centers or "stem" of each tentacle may be a different color than the projections from it.

Some variations may also have fluorescent green, blue, orange or gold as well.

Clove Polyps are very similiar in appearance to Anthelia corals.

A distinguishing feature is the base of the polyp; Anthelia polyps can only deflate, whereas Clove Polyps can retract their polyps completely.

Clove 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.
