    Hi

    Please assist me with identifying this coral. I think its a Xenia, but I am not sure. It started growing out of a piece of live rock I bought a couple of months ago... (great freebee)

    Thanks

    Those look like normal star polyps.

    Here are some pics of my old tank. Check the polyps on the rear glass. A video would give a better impression as the polyps sway in the current.
