    Hi Guys, bought some LR over the weekend found some interesting looking Corals???

    here are the pics, the white thing in picture actually looks very similar to a mushroom, but with lumo ping speckles on it, pictures aren't wonderful but I hope they help.

    Also this, I have no idea, what they are what they could be. Not pres-stic for sure, but coral for sure. Your help would be much appreciated.

    Size is about as big as the silver piece of a memory stick. The part that dissapears when you pop it into the usb drive.

    Ricordia, probably a R yuma, i.o.w. Yes, a mushroom. Due to being kept in darkness, it has expelled its symbiotic algae, or they have gone hunting for a host which receives more light. Slowly acclimatise it to light and it should recover.

    Ingestion is my guess.have not really studied it. Good Q, as I do know that zoox is present in larvae from acro sp. Have often wondered if the host expells or the zoox flee during bleaching.... Have closely studied rtn in acroporids and in that case my observation was polyps leave first.
