Hello to all,

Can someone help me in identifying this polyp( At least I think that's what it is)
They grow on my LR in what appears to be a colony.

I have recently rescaped the tank a bit and in the process moved this rock to the top. The polyps are open fully at night and also occasionally during the day (although not permanently open)

They are currently placed in a high flow , high light area.

Could be anthelia sp.
Thanks Midasblenny,

Mhhhmm ... Really difficult for me to make a positive ID.

I've looked at the Clavularia species with primarily clove polyps. Relationship to some Anthelia sp. is quite close and hence my difficulty in ID'ing this polyp.

I have approx 4 different coloured colonies of these polyps throughout the tank in various spots ( bottom , middle and top of LR)

For now I'll just let them grow a bit more. Most of them seem to be extending their polyps more throughout the day now than before, so it seems they are happy with their placement in my tank at present. :thumbup:
