The Actiniaria order, which has 46 different families and four suborders, is where sea anemones are classified. With their swaying fronds and floating appendages, these animals can be compared to terrestrial flowers because of how they seem. Anemones and corals have a synergetic relationship with clownfish – getting one for your little pet is a great idea.

LPS Corals

Large Polyp Stony is referred to as LPS. Large Polyp Stony corals have fleshy bodies that expand with water to conceal the skeleton beneath. They often have more fleshy polyps and are giant calcareous corals. The quantity of light, current, and whether or not the coral is feeding all affect how far out its tentacles extend. To keep any other species at a safe distance, the majority of LPS hard corals generate lengthy sweeper tentacles.


Cnidarians belonging to the order Zoanthids, also known as Zoanthidea or Zoanthiniaria, are frequently found on coral reefs, the deep sea, and several other marine settings all over the world. These creatures are available in a wide range of colors and colonial shapes. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced hobbyists all love Zoanthid and Palythoas polyps. In addition, beginners appreciate the wide selection of species that are reasonably priced and simple to maintain.

Soft Corals

Soft and bendable, soft corals, including sea fingers and sea whips, frequently resemble plants or trees. These corals don’t produce reefs and don’t have stony skeletons; instead, they develop fleshy rinds and wood-like cores for protection. They typically dwell in colonies, just like hard corals.


“SPS coral” refers to a group of coral species with minuscule coral polyps embedded in a stony calcium carbonate skeleton. Individual polyps seem hard-branched or plated on SPS corals.

SPS corals can be discovered in nature – the epidermis at the base of each coral polyp steadily secretes the skeleton of these corals. The frequency of this varies on the species.
