    Hi Guys

    I have a Green star polyp colony that doesnt seem to be all that healthy.
    I bought it from LFS and it wasbasicaly a purple mat with some polyps.
    That was about a month ago.. it still looks like it should have more polyps.
    I see other guys pics and it looks like a beautiful waving bed of grass ) closest i can compare :))
    Is my colony just still young or should I be concerned ?

    yeah, there should be more polyps and they should be a little more protruded. but dont worry - they are prob just sulking from the move. Give them some nice light and a moderate flow and some time - they will come right. These things are like weeds so dont stress!!!!

    Mine was the same for a couple for a couple of weeks and then it sprung to life. I did move it to a better light position though.

    put it in a good light position and give it a light brushing with a very soft brush .

    I ve had it where they wouldn't open and it was a bit of algae.

    After brushing them they take a couple days to open but then they go mad and open huge.
