Species Name: Clavularia viridis

Authority: Quoy & Gaimard, 1833

Common Name: Clove/Palm Tree/Fern Polyps

Range: Indo-Pacific Ocean

Natural Environment: Found along upper reef slopes and upper hardpan areas of lagoons

General Husbandry: Has a temperature range of 72 to 81°F (22 - 27°C) and is similar in 'growth,’ to Pachyclavularia violacea/viridis (Green Star Polyps) i.e., an encrusting species. Generally very hardy and prefers moderate light and strong water flow, and also seems to do better when alkalinity is maintained above 3 meq/l.
