This happens to me all the time, lol

Lol glad in not the only one

Here are some pix. It looks like the zoa came with one aptasia (what should I do about that?). The clam is even a little open here too! Looks like a little tongue is sticking out

That is a Kenya Tree. Love the Royal Gramma.... The Long tentacled plate coral looks more like a Torch Coral. But very sweet deals you got.

Thanks

Maybe it is a kenya tree. The pictures I found online all showed stubby, short limbs, but it could just be a different variety.

I'm pretty sure it's a plate coral. This is what it looks like when retracted

Oh, and it's a dottyback and not a grammar. I really wanted a royal grammar, but my lfs didn't have one. They did have this one (mis-marked as a bicolored blenny), so I bought her. She's my favorite little fish

Looks like some real nice pick ups. They all seem quite hardy. Good luck with them.
