    I have seen these small flowery polyp things emerging from a died off piece of coral. First I thought it was the coryl coming back to life, but with some further investigation I found what it was. This is absolutely stunning!!! I am so exited!!! The ones I have are still quite small, and they are white only. Yet they look like below. Can anyone tell me if they need any special care?

    It looks like Pulsing Xenia almost - or am I wrong? Tho the yellow tinge on the stalks makes me wonder... if it's Pulsing Xenia, don't worry - it's probably the easiest coral around!!! Anybody else?

    I think that they might be family of the xenia species. BUT, not xenia.

    They are a soft-coral species, Jaco. So, they will like moderate water flow, moderate to strong lighting, some iodine, and nothing else ;)

    Sweet!!! Can't wait for these babie to grow big!!! Hope they color up as well too... The white is nice, but color is better!!! Will submit some more pics later in the year when they have grown a bit...
