overview
The Colony Micro Polyp energizes reef aquariums with a "POP" of exciting color. The color variations of these Colony Micro Polyps will wake up lack-luster setups with stimulating color and texture.

The Colony Micro Polyp is a prized coral specimen for serious Zoanthid collector and budding reef aquarium enthusiast alike. Over time, an established colony of Colony Micro Polyp will create a living carpet of color for an exceptional display. The petite polyps of this "micro" zoa add further visual sure to pique the interest of any observant hobbyist.

The Colony Micro Polyp has the ability to sting other polyps or corals. While the sting is not strong, be sure to provide sufficient space between the Colony Micro Polyp and other corals because of its semi-aggressive temperament and potential to crowd out neighbors.

Similar to other Zoanthus Colony Polyp Corals, the Colony Micro Polyp are easy to maintain, making it a good choice for beginner reef aquarists. The Colony Micro Polyp requires moderate light levels combined with medium water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, the Colony Micro Polyp will also require the addition of iodine and other trace elements.

Under ideal conditions, the Colony Micro Polyp will multiply without difficulty in home reef aquariums by budding (splitting off a portion of their base or mouth) to increase the size of the colony. The Colony Micro Polyp contains the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae which satisfies almost all of its nutritional requirements. If the lighting is not optimal, the Colony Micro Polyp should be fed micro-plankton or baby brine shrimp.

It is common to receive a rock that is not completely covered in polyps. However, under the right conditions, they will quickly spread across this and surrounding rocks in the aquarium.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 2" to 3"; Medium: 3" to 4"; Large: 4" to 5"
