Product Description

Bubble tip corallimorphs, also called warty corallimorphs, and St Thomas Mushrooms, Discosoma sanctithomae, are an interesting corallimorph that seem to be a cross between a ricordea and a discosoma mushroom. They come is a variety of shades of green or blue and have differing colors and types of tentacles. This particular color and growth pattern is a bit more uncommon.

All of the corallimorphs we sell are extremely hardy and are great for any level of reef keeper, from the novice to the pros. They are primarily photosynthetic, but should be fed some sort of supplemental planktonic foods. In the wild they eat the organic dust and silt that settles on them, so when feeding them, dust them with food.

The two species of anemone shrimp from the Caribbean, Periclimenes yucatan and Periclimenes pedersoni, will readily take up residence on these discosoma polyps and provide an interesting show in your tank

These are loose polyps and are not attached to any significant amount of substrate. They will eventually attach to any clean substrate in your tank, or you can epoxy or superglue them to what ever you want.

As with all corallimorphs, anemones, zoanthids, and corals, be careful handling them in and out of the water. They produce stinging cells that can sting your hands and irritate your eyes, so use gloves if you’re sensitive to their sting, and don’t let the mucus get in your eyes.

Please Note:  Any new fish purchased from us or from a local pet store should to be quarantined.  All fish from anywhere in the wild can be possible carriers of bacteria and protozoa that can lead to an infection in your system, so we always recommend that you use some sort of quarantine system prior to adding them to your system.  If you have a fish only system and can medicate the whole system, you may not need a separate quarantine tank.  If you have a reef system that cannot be medicated, a good ultraviolet sterilization system should prevent any kind of disease outbreak.  We medicate our system for bacterial infections and protozoans, but because we don’’t always hold our fish for long periods of time, there is no way to be sure all the protozoan cysts have been killed.  A little bit of prevention will save you lots of trouble down the line.

    Very cool looking, I got one that looks similar to the picture! It’s attached itself to a piece of my Live Rock after a couple days already. Very enjoyable to have and a nice addition to any tank.
