    They commonly called bali polyps. They are a parazoanthus species.

    They look like a easy spreader or can they be curtailed to a area?

    I'm not sure how they will spread / grow... I've only had them a little while...

    Thanks for the ID and the compliment for the photo though.

    I've been really busy but must update the thread with pictures etc. I recently got a couple of Cardinals and they are settling in really nicely now... initially they were rather suspicious of the reef... and my Mushroom has just cloned itself into three, very exciting!! :)
