    Hi guys,

    So I managed to pick up some coral yesterday at a good deal, but the guy I got them from was, lets say less than educated about what they were and/or how to handle them, so they look a little battered.

    Anyways, since I myself am uneducated about them, I hope someone can help me ID them...

    1. Star green polyp ?? (worse for wear)

    2. Zoanthid?

    3. Brown mushroom

    4. Very small flowers of something (can also be seen on the live rock to the right of the shroom above)

    5. This thing I have no clue, looks like a shroom to me, but I can't see anything online that resembles it under the shrooms sections.

    Appreciate the help..

    1. Star polyps in bad shape. well it looks like that.
    2. Zoa
    3. Green striped mushroom
    4. might be Blue glove polyps.
    5. Not sure. Seems you did place the rock correctly, the part that used to be in the light is still in the light. Might be a small anemone.

    Excuse my ignorance, but you say 5 could be a small anemone? Wow. Ok.. It has no tentacles though? Is that possible?

    Number 5 picture is very bad.
    Flip the rock and retake it.

    It can be anything, closed up rock anemone to a bleached up mushroom.

    At night it seems the same, though it closes up more. So I think its just some arb shroom
