    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 However the polyps have been retracted for the past ~3 weeks and I noticed that the algae on the rock has spread to part of the base (dark green) but also there are these neon green wispy stuff on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.
