    Paly? [ID]

    Anyone have an idea what this might be? Hitched a ride on some rock. Keeps growing larger and larger.

    Not sure why, but about 10% - 20% of the tentacles end in a "Y" shape instead of a single tip. Is that a health issue or just something odd about this particular species?

    Looks like a morph of green button polyps.

    The first picture is relatively accurate with the colors. The center is a combination of green/pink and has a shimmer to it. The tentacles are green/pink. Some of the tentacles split into a "Y" shape at the end. Trunk is pink, mouth area is green/pink/blue.

    Each has a single white line through half of the disc.

    Started off small enough, but now the larger heads are about 4x larger or more than my zoas.

    Originally was two heads I found tucked under the rock. Turned it a bit to give it better light and flow, this is about 3 months of growth from those first two noticed heads.

    edit: just noticed this is in the wrong forum, whoops. If someone can/wants to move it over the the right place please feel free.
