    Branching GSp

    My gsp has completely covered the small rock I have it on and is now growing “limbs” I guess (not indovual polyp tubes) out of itself. Is this what the branching variety does? Like the purple mat has little trees or purple with multiple polyps on it growing off it.

    GSP Issue

    So for some reason one of my GSP frag closed up. It was open last week and now it closed up and looks like it is disintegrating (seeing the green polyp) The other frag is doing well though and it was part of that frag I cut off. That part of the frag was already closing off when I cut that...

    Is this GSP the branching variety?

    I got this GSP as a small piece inside a zoa frag. It’s growing big growths off the edges of the colony. Is this the branching variety GSP or is it the normal one?

    Branching gsp?

    I’ve got a big chunk of gsp that started out as a tiny 0.5” sized peice I pulled off a zoa frag. It’s starting to grow “branches” or bug tubes off the purple mat and getting super long. Is this the branching variety? First GSP I’ve ever had. Always avoided it like the plague but I really wanted...

    Bizarre assortment of some sort of soft coral eating parasite.

    I was doing a water change and noticed that there was some parasite in my frag sized green stare encrusting polyps, so I performed a coral dip with iodine twice and tried to scape off as many parasites as I could. After dumping the dirty water in the sink, I was horrified by what I saw and took...

    Are there different kinds of Star Polyps or GSP?

    I saw these two frags a couple days ago in my City store and went back today because i couldn't stop thinking about them, they're really green hehe, I was wondering are there different varieties of GSP and what colors can you get them in?

    GSP Issues

    Hi All, I have a GSP piece that had been growing nicely around the rock. However the polyps have been retracted for the past ~3 weeks and I noticed that the algae on the rock has spread to part of the base (dark green) but also there are these neon green wispy stuff on it as well. Any idea what...

    Dead GSP?

    Hey everyone I have a question in regards to my GSP. I’m not sure if it is dead or not or has some disease. It closed up for a bit but then the lower polyps began to grow so I’m not sure if I should just leave it alone or do any preventive measures on the white part. I have another coral in my...

    Green star polyps to combat bubble algae?

    I've been fighting bubble algae on and off for about a year now and I'm getting tired of it. I physically remove them with a hose and screw driver and they come back within a week. They detach from rock and end up in my powerheads, causing cascading issues. I'd rather grow GSP because at least...

    GSP Field

    I'm planning a little 10 gallon DIY AIO aquarium for my office at work. I want to do a bare bottom and let GSP basically cover the whole thing. What I want to know is if there would be a way to prevent the GSP from growing up onto the rockwork? If I attached pvc pipe cutoffs to keep the rock an...
