    Hi guys I want to know if green star polyps need anything different than other soft corals? Coz I got 2 tanks one cube 500l and a 1.5 that is 700l, I haven't done any water change in 7 months on any of the 2 tanks and my parameters are good, but my gsp are dying slowly in both tanks while the others corals is thriving. If anyone can help I would appreciate it thanks

    They like some nutrients in the water. Need some nitrates.

    Oky if I take out the gsp would the other corals be fine or do zoas and stuff like that also needs nutrients?

    What are your tank parameters?
    If you not doing water changes, what are you dosing to keep things stable?
