    Good morning all Ok so i got this specimen and it has grown about 5 times the original the size in the last 2 months.... not sure can this be a torch or is this a plate coral.... on closer look it has a fleshy foot that is attaching it to the rock almost like a nemmie but it looks like boney growths amongst the tenticales that is pointing me in the direction of this being a LPS. and then last but not least..... i bought this frogspawn and got these tubes on my frogspawn that discharges this mucus in the water column... look like a snail of some sort living in the tubes .... are they good or bad[​IMG][​IMG]

    The top one looks like a baby torch coral.

    On 1st impressions I vote with Nemos janitor. To make sure you need to disturb it till it retract, if it is a euphulia you would be able to see the skeleton below;) if not ........:whistling:

    If you bought that coral from us at Pet Stop the chances of euphylia are 95%, as they are constantly spawning in our holding aquariums.
