    They like gentle swaying flow and they can handle medium to intense light

    euphyllia cristata ( putat ) euphyllia glabarescens ( torch ) euphyllia ancora ( anchor or hammer ) euphyllia divisa ( frog spawn ) the frog spawn that has a horse shoe skeleton is para divisa and the hammer or anchor that has a horse shoe skeleton is para anchora. Google the names and choose the one that looks closest to yours.

    I've got the same - the frag Scuba gave me. I agree with frogspawn, read somewhere it's also called "purple tip green frogspawn"
