PR Papaya clove polyp is a charmingly named colonial species. They are a very hardy soft coral, which does have the ability to spread around your aquarium, which may cause issues in the long run which is why they are best kept isolated from the main rock structure.  

Frags of this coral have been growing under LED lights for a while

Under these, they have flourished with both rapid growth and good coloration.  

This coral can tolerate lower lighting, and moderate flow is advised to maintain optimum health, the flow is important because it will keep detritus from settling on them 

In addition to this, it will also require the correct levels of Calcium, Alkalinity, and Magnesium along with various other trace elements found in natural seawater. Having said that, as they don't have a skeleton they are more tolerant than hard corals

Additional feeding isn't required to maintain its health, as they get the majority of their food from photosynthesis.

Something to look out for is their exterior slime coating, which can cause skin irritant.

 

Care Level - Easy

Flow - Moderate,

Lighting - Lower end but can tolerate a wide range of lighting

Temperament - Peaceful
