So i picked up an awesome cyphastrea christmas tree worm rock the other day and it came with another coral attached to it, i suspect it is a rock flower anemone but im not 100% sure. Any input is much appreciated 🙂

It really is! The Christmas tree worm rock they came on is an absolute beauty as well.

Wow... nice triple-score there - a non-ugly coral colony, nice mix of worm colors AND a rock flower anemone.  Some reefers have all the luck!  ;)

 

I tried a christmas tree rock in my tank, but the lighting levels I run at for my rock flower anemones and blastos doesn't seem to be up to snuff for keeping porites happy.  But I can't seem to keep cyphastrea from going bonkers, though.  If you don't mind my asking, did you order this online, or just a crazy lucky local find?

Hey sorry for the late reply,

 

I ordered this online as i couldnt find any local places in the UK that had the worm rocks, the pictures online didnt show the rock flowers though so it was an awesome surprise when they acclimated and opened up.
