Briareum abestinum Green
Size: 6-7 cm
Feeding: Unnecessary, although planktonic coral foods (such as Zooplan) are eagerly accepted
The Green protein of Briareum Green is considerable more fluorescent than standard strain, but its real hallmark is how long the tentacles become in good water flow. This results in the polyps flowing and billowing in a mesmerizing fashion.
Like all green star polyps, Briareum Green is fast growing and will overgrow your other corals and rockwork if placed nearby. When aquascaping with Briareum Green, it is important to consider 2-5 years down the road, when they will have spread considerably. Therefore we recommend the strategic placement of your colony on the back of the aquarium glass, PVC piping, as an 'island' in the sandbed, or on the aquarium bottom in a substrate-less reef. This will allow you to manage your Briareum Green and prune it as necessary without worrying that it will overgrow your main rockwork. However, a Briareum Green dominated nano reef can also be a striking aquascape.
