Sympodium blue polyps are relatively new in the hobby.  They have unique blue and green polyps that grow from a blue mat that adds a distinctive color to the reef tank and is very attractive.

They are a small size polyp that grows in mats much like Star Polyps.  Growth is slow with no concerns of them taking over the reef tank as some polyps like Star Polyps can.

They do well in moderate to fairly bright light and moderate water motion.

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.
