    The pattern is quite typical of discosoma but it looks a little too textured, which would be more like a Rhodactis. See the two smooth body discosoma on the right.

    Those two R. florida are awesome. Are they yours Rod?

    I am still in search for more!
    I wish they were mine! They actually belong to Carl. The good news is that they are in my hands until there are a number of them. I received three of the "orange" florida. All three are self dividing. The one in the photo has nearly completed the division.
    In time I hope to encourage them a bit.
    As for the blue one, it has expanded now and has two mouths. So I expect that to divide soon.
    I have a problem in that I can feed a number of Rhodactus etc but the Florida roll my offerings off. So I am looking for something they really like.
    Going to try fish roe today.
    Gali I have a large collection of different "mushrooms" you are welcome to have a look.
