    Wow, that would be cool if it is.

    Unusual colour for a photosynthetic coral

    Sorry to tell y'all... this coral has been dyed. It really upsets me to see that this is still being done!

    They look dyed to me too. They should fade within a few weeks or so. Might notice skimmate a bit yellower...

    How do you dye, such a small polyp ? And everyone ?

    Also that coral has been in a tank for 6 months, so how long does the dye last ?

    Warr: I dont think they are dyed... Brains and finger leathers etc more commonly dyed but to dye each zoo polyp would take forever! Nice find hope they flourish!

    After 6 months doubt if they are dyed, great looking coral.

    The polyp size has nothing to do with it. They dye gonioporas all the time. The corals aren't dyed polyp by polyp... I don't know where anyone got that idea.

    Those are normal yellow `ballet dancer` zoos, definitely no foul play, see them in just about every lfs for the past 10 years.
