Clove Polyps come in a number of colors including brown, gray, green, orange and red.  Their long stems allow them to wave beautifully in the currents.

They are usually easy to keep and suitable for almost any type of reef tank and so are a great choice for the beginner.

They do well in moderate to fairly bright light and low to moderate water motion.  Feeding is not necessary

They will grow and reproduce by budding, and will spread over the rocks. Their growth should be monitored and if necessary the coral should be trimmed to keep it from encroaching on its neighbors.

Photo Notes We want you to be happy with the coral that you receive and we take pride in the corals that we offer.  To provide true representation of the color and health for our WYSIWYG corals, they are photographed and white balanced under the ReefCorner LED lighting at approximately a 10K to 14K white point to best show the actual color of the coral. The coloration may vary when viewed under different lighting.  The grid the coral is typically photographed on is approximately 0.6" per square to give you a size reference.
Naming Notes We identify the scientific name when we are able to with some degree of accuracy. You will notice that we don’t give our corals cool names like “AWESOME ULTRA SUPER METALLIC NEON RED AND SCREAMING LIME GREEN ULTRA ULTRA COLORED AUSSIE” unless it is a name in common usage in the hobby that helps to identify the coral. We let our pictures do the talking and you can be the judge of whether our corals are awesome or not.
