    Hi

    I bought this (it is growing like mad:thumbup:). LFS wasn't sure what it was, said it was brought in as a hammer coral, but none of the heads are the right shape. Is it Frogspawn maybe?

    i only saw the tiny one. Yes that could be a frogspawn. It should open up a lot more, has it maybe got too much flow on it?

    I'm going to go out on limb and say a torch, due to the fact that there only appears to be one tip per polyp.

    usually with a frog you can see the multiple tips, even when retrscted, and doesn't apear to be a hammer as the polyps or round.

    I rate froggy.. if you look very carfully there are multiple tips per polyp, it did however appear as a torch at first.

    Yes that is me - I am photo-post impaired apparently :p. It does open up more then the pic. Pretty sure it is not a green torch (then again what do I know), hubby has one of those and they don't look alike.

    Just wait Dikdaan, it keeps growing as I look at it. The way I stare it will out-grow yours in no time :razz:
