Cn-110 PINK HYDROID, Eudendrium carneum


A handsome plumed hydroid with orange gonophores. It grows explosively over floating docks and wharf pilings in the spring and begins to die off in cold weather. By the dead of winter, only small tufts with a few polyps can be found. Under the dissecting scope, you can watch the feeding polyps stretch out and slowly grasp at bits of food. Nudibranchs glide over the stems along with flexing, bobbing skeleton shrimp, also snails, flatworms, etc., which are protected by the stinging polyp forests. Eudendrium is excellent for demonstrating tissue differentiation of polyps and stolons. Specimens will produce planula larvae if kept overnight in a dish of seawater. Size: 10-20 cm or larger.
