    Seeing the recent interest in these polyps got me wondering. Is there any way of controlling these polyps in your tank? Or why would anyone want to put a frag in your tank that will cover all your rocks? I've had a rock about the size of a pc mouse covered with these polyps but removed it after they popped up everywhere. I guess its safe to say that I've lost the battle, almost every piece of LR in my tank have their share of the famous blue clove/daisy polyps. :banghead:

    I have the same issue with green star polyps. Started with a small piece, love the coral but they tend to take over. I would say the best is to isolate the rock you would like them to grow on. Whenever you see them pop up somewhere else, brush that piece with a hard toothbrush before they can establish. Ive won the battle with my GSP but learned a lesson. I still have a piece but its on the side of the tank, not touching any other live rock.

    I want it to cover everything it can in my pico so that is why I am looking for some.

    Cool idea with a pico. A real bitch to deal with in a big tank.
