    Any info about this coral is welcome! Im a bit hesitant to put it in my 37g.. Ive seen comments about it being another Kenya weed.. I just dont want it to over take my tank. Also are there ways to keep fragging this coral to keep it at bay? thanks

    They aren't quite as pesky as kenya trees. And they grow on a purple mat that is relatively easy to peel off of rocks if you want to frag it or get rid of some. I wouldn't consider them a pest, and I think they make a nice addition to a mixed reef tank. :)

    +1 Biff. It's a great filler.

    I would say more like 5 bucks. But some prices vary with region I guess? Wait for more people to chip in.

    I would say that is really overpriced as well, I think $5 is a fair price

    I agree. Green star polyp frags shouldn't be very expensive since they are so common and easy to grow.

    Although they can grow like weeds, I think they are beautiful weeds.
    Kenya Trees are just drab and bulky.

    This is what I did also. Just keep it trimmed and away from any other rock work

    Emily where are you in Boston, pm me if you'd like. I have some GSP from my 55 that I'd give away to local enthusiast.

    I love my GSP. I have not found them to be as invasive as let's see xenia, yellow polyps, and kenya tree.
