What’s the name of this and will the tentacle come out again

Postby ttmad on Sun Nov 12, 2017 9:02 pm

I bought these two hairy things today. Then drove home, stopped by a restaurant. All the tentacles shrink back. (Like George) After getting home and putting it in the tank immediately, (I should be more patient), they seem don’t come out. After waiting for 6 hours, they still don’t come out fully. What should I do?

Not much you can do except check your water parameters. If they are all good then leave it alone and give it time to adjust to your water parameters.
What kind of light was it in where you got it? Green star polyps (if that is what it is) don't need a ton of light.

The tank they use to live in had plenty of light. I googled the photo, I think you are correct. green star polyps. Thanks!

I would put it on your sand bed as well. Otherwise they will spread all across your aquascape.

When you say “spread across”, How? What do you mean? It will reproduce? But, in what way? Break off some parts? Or the hair part break off then form a new colony? I wish it will spread at this point.

Sorry, I am a newbie.
