Brief Summary

Read full entry
The ringed tubularia looks somewhat like a small bouquet of pink flowers. A colony consists of a bushy bunch of stems, each ending with a polyp with tentacles. Ringed tubularia reproduce in two ways. Small jellyfish-like organisms reproduce sexually while attached to the ends of the stems. New polyps hatch immediately out of the eggs. The second manner is asexual: loose pieces of the colony are carried by the sea current and can 'take root' at a new location.
