    I found this Monti (I think) hiding in my reef. It seems like some sort of encrusting species.

    It seems to have blue polyps. Will this stay like this?

    Any idea on species name ?

    Nothing that I can see, what I will do is mount for superman's parameters and see if I get any change in colour.

    Be really cool if I find a Superman monti hiding in my reef :)
