Strikingly similar and often confused with Green Star Polyps, Briareum asbestinum (aka branching star polyps), this coral is sure to be a unique conversation piece in any aquarium. It's purple tissue structure resembles the plating mat of GSP, however it grows in a strikingly similar pattern to SPS but with a unique tubular pattern. Briareum asbestinum requires the same car and conditions as green star polyps, thriving in moderate to high flow and medium to strong lighting. Grown under Kessils here, the mother colony has shown a medium growth rate, however slower than its more common plating sibling.
