Hi Guys,

Still battling to ID the following polyps in my tank.

The closest link I could find is that they are part of the octocoral group.
Not sure whether this may be a relative to Goniapora ? ( Although the colour doesn't match)

First pic shows what the polyps look like when semi-extended. (Red circle). Looks like I have more of the same growing next to it (White circle)

I've done a rough sketch of what the polyps look like when fully extended. Didn't have time this morning to take a pic when they were open.
The polyp has 8 tentacles of blood red colour and the body is bright orange with a blood red oral disc.
