Aquacultured Rose Bud Paly Coral - 2 Polyps 4-5-f


These large bright pink and red palys are called Rose bud. There are 2 polyps growing on a frag plug.

They are very easy to maintain in the reef aquarium which make them great for the begginning reef aquarist. Their polyps have the ability to sting other animals and are semi-aggressive and should be given space between their colony and any neighbors. They also grow rapidly and will crowd out other less aggressive corals. They reproduce easily by budding, (splitting off a portion of their base or mouth), which will increase the size of their colony in your reef aquarium. 

The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within their bodies provides the majority of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis.
