This platter is made up at our suppliers in Indonessia. Quality polyps of Zooanthiads and others are selected and grafted onto a plate of live rock and then placed in the sea at there coral farm. Under the natural seawater conditions these platter fill up to be covered with polyps. These polyps have the ability to sting other polyps or corals. While the sting is not strong, they are semi-aggressive and need to have space between their colony and any neighbors since they tend to crowd them out. They are easy to maintain, making them a good choice for beginner reef aquarists. They require a moderate light level combined with a medium water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, they will also require the addition of iodine and other trace elements to the water. They will reproduce easily in the reef aquarium by budding (splitting off a portion of their base or mouth), which will increase the size of their colony. They contain the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae which provide almost all of their nutritional requirements. Especially if the lighting is not optimal, they should be fed micro-plankton or baby brine shrimp. It is common to receive a rock that is not completely covered in polyps. However, under the right conditions, they will quickly spread across this and surrounding rocks in the aquarium. Each platter consists of a mix of up to 6 different polyps. This can be a combination of Zoanthus, Palythoa, and Green Star Polyp. Depending on availability,
