This Clove Polyp is a bit of a unique one, where the "cloves" on each polyp is much thicker than the other varities that we grow. The coloration of this piece gives off a pastel like sheen and look, which includes the yellow tips. Under the right lighting hues, the cloves look a bit teal. These polyps get fairly large in size as well, and are great if you're looking for a clove polyp in a larger aquarium or just like large sized cloves.
Clove polyp corals should be given a dedicated area to grow or their own little rock, as they encrust onto the rock they grow on. Their polyps are taller than most soft corals and may shade over them when grown too close.
Pastel Yellow Tipped Clove Polyps
Great for all experiences
A great grower. Increased growth with feeding such as Benepets.
Can be be kept in lower to medium lighting.
Currently kept under Kessil A360X units. Mounting height 24" above water line. 12:00PM - 10:00PM at 70% blue intensity.
Prefers low flow when first purchased. Too strong of a flow may cause it to deattach from the plug. Once established and it starts to grow onto your rocks, you may give it slightly higher flow. But take care not to give it excessively strong flow, as it's still a soft coral and can be damaged.
Currently kept with Maxspect Gyre 350s Pumps.
