i have no idea what this is...a anemone? mushroom of some sort? this is going to sound wrong but when you poke it ....it gets hard? *face palm*..

it hitchhiked in on a rock*? a mushroom was attached to. since the mushroom has left... i moved the tiny green piece into HIGH light area and its loving it. moving tentacles, likes meaty food *shrug*

any ideas ???

 

 

in the first pic. its the thing on the very left :P

the last pic is what it looked like when i got it ( i didnt buy "IT"...i bought the mushroom that had attached itself to it)...just a rock. i had no idea it was a coral and now...look...

Looks like a stony coral of some sort. An elegance coral maybe?

Oh. Is is the one with tentacles in the second pic and those things in the last pic that look closed up? Most probably a LPS. Maybe a pic when it's fully open will help ID it better.

Nothing wrong with trying to find out exactly what it is. :) I don't know the names of every coral that I have myself. But yeah, a better pic will help in identification.

Looks like an elegance coral. Like posted before. Gets hard when you poke it. :blink: Ha. Does it not stay "inflated" once you poke it? Is it getting hard you feeling the base. Dont rub it, you dont want to tear the flesh. Looks reef friendly thought. What did you pay for the shroom rock w/bonus? Might of snagged something nice.

 

Get a day light pic.

maybe a duncan? hard to really tell with the actinic on. But it definitely looks like an LPS

Well now I am more confused because I haven't seen a mixmatched skeleton like that before. The large portion looks like montipora the bottom skeleton looks like a duncan :blink:

 

Definitely not an elgance or a duncan though.

I just saw this at my lfs. In over a year I've never seen it before. I asked I it was a "new" coral, or rare. It's not a difficult coral to get at all they said, its just not popular for some reason. I have no recollection of what he said its called. Sorry, I know that's by what you want to hear.

I agree, with some insane polyp extension.

I'd agree with that!

 

What's with all the font colors?

 

Maybe if you keep poking it, blow on it, and taste it we would be able to ID it. Hey, you said it, not me. ;)

The PE makes it look bizarre. They have a nasty sting don't they?

Yes, very aggressive, hardy, and a quick grower. For me anyway.
