The Blue Lollypop Tunicate originates from the shallow reefs of Indonesia and has a thick base with multiple branches. At the tip of each branch, these tunicates develop a cauliflower-like head. These heads are comprised of clusters of zooids that continually filter the water for food.

It is common for these tunicates to drop their heads both during transit, and within the aquarium. During this time, the tunicate will cover itself with a clear mucous. This is not an indication of poor health. Within a few weeks, the tunicate will blossom and form new zooids.

The Blue Lollypop Tunicate requires a mature reef aquarium with plenty of live rock and excellent water conditions. They are non-photosynthetic and have no lighting requirements, but should be placed in an area of strong intermittent water current. Some species of Angelfish, Moorish Idols and Nudibranch may eat this species of tunicate.

The Blue Lollypop Tunicate will require supplemental feeding with liquid plankton and other dissolved organic foods, as well as benefiting from the addition of iodine and trace elements.
