I had a large rock full of polyps up until 3 months ago My nitrates rose very high (magenta colored), probably from over feeding. They have not opened in several weeks now. There is still the purple color on the rock, which I’ve been told is a sign that there is still life. Any advice would be highly appreciated

I bought a small piece of green star with about 10 polyps on it. I bought it about a month and a half ago and now I have almost doubled the amount of polyps and it's already starting to encrust the rock I put it on. Gave me confidence as this is my 1st addition for my reef tank.

I've have gsp for a long time now and noticed they are not extending like they used to any reason to it?

    Normally expansion problems have to do with poor water movement.

This coral is very easy to take care of, it grows really fast and is easy to frag.

I got a tiny little piece from a freind, I mean small maybe two polyps on it. Now it is overgrowing the rocks in a couple of spots, grows really fast. It's gnarley looking too!
