Notes: These striking polyps are easy to keep and are a great choice for the beginner. Yellow Polyps will grow and reproduce by budding, when provided with the proper environment.
Place polyps along the bottom half of the aquarium on an exposed rock. Make sure that currents will be able to supply them with necessary nutrients and trace elements. Leave several inches between them and other specimens, as they will usually expand their colony.
Although symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae hosted within them supply some of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis they do require supplemental feedings. Supplementing their diet with the addition of trace elements, marine snow, phytoplankton, and food for filter feeders will help to insure their continued good health.
Yellow Polyps are shipped as colonies with numerous polyps attached to one rock.
