First introduction

Post  thierry on Tue Mar 09, 2010 11:47 am

Bought this rock with star polyps on it, not sure yet which one it is. Currently in doubt between Pachyclavularia violacea and Clavularia viridis. Hope to make some pictures after cleaning soon.

Dying? Polyps closed

Post  thierry on Mon Mar 15, 2010 1:28 pm

Last few days the polyps havent opened themselves, its being terrorized by algae also, constantly cleaning the rock hoping the polyps will open again, but no luck so far Sad

Not much to see anymore, since they are almost all closed. Hoping that keeping it clean and adding some suppliments and food for corals helps a bit.

The road to rebuilding Pt 1

Post  thierry on Thu Apr 22, 2010 11:29 pm

The star polyps still have trouble with the algae. Hopefully after rebuilding things will be better/easier. In the new situation I also want to give them a new spot, hopefully that helps also.

The road to rebuilding Pt2

Post  thierry on Fri Apr 23, 2010 3:26 pm

The buttons and polyps will have a nice location at the very top, where I hope they will build a sort of a bridge. They will have a lot of light there, and not too much water flow. So the idea is to have a bridge between rock pillars filled with polyps. All three polyp types will be located at the top is the idea. The button and colony polyps are already located high, but also the star polyps will be put there…if they manage to stay open for another week.

The road to rebuilding Pt 3

Post  thierry on Wed May 12, 2010 4:00 pm

The Green Star Polyps are actually recovering, more seem to be opening lately. A lot of them have died unfortunately, but I’m glad some survived the Dinoplague. Hope in the new setting they will expand even more.

Rebuilding Day 4, the aftermath

Post  thierry on Mon May 17, 2010 3:45 pm

We didn't clean the rock, so a lot of grey junk was on it when we put it back. Cleaned it a bit by putting it in front of the pump, now see how the polyps come out, see if it can still be saved. The location should be good at least.

The days after, Part 1

Post  thierry on Tue May 18, 2010 10:39 am

The Green Star Polyps are slowly opening, some small ones are open already. Hopefully it will expend and return to the state it was in before we bought it. It has had a lot to endure with the Dinoflagetes and dust.

Many new corals

Post  thierry on Fri May 28, 2010 12:12 pm

The green star polyps are doing better every day. Unfortunately it doesn’t show in the picture, since the light was already off and I only turned it on to make some pictures. Hopefully it will show more in future pictures Smile

Star Polyps are still growing bigger and more of them are showing up. Very happy about the way they recovered after all that has happened after we bought them. Going to do a search on them soon to determine the species.

Suggestion from a forum

Post  thierry on Tue Jun 08, 2010 3:59 pm

Jansch from zeewaterforum gave the suggestion it might be Stolonifera sp. Only found one picture on reeflex, and it's not very clear from there

Post  thierry on Fri Aug 06, 2010 10:24 am

The star polyps moved a bit because their location didn't excist anymore. They are now located close to the soft coral.

Back from vacation

Post  thierry on Thu Sep 16, 2010 3:25 pm

The green star polyps have been in the aquarium for 6 months now. We bought it when we got the big plague, which killed most of the polyps. Shortly after the rebuild it started to recover slowly and more polyps appeared. Now after the Angelfish was caught the rock with polyps moved a bit, but the expansion is still ongoing.
