frag ID

I picked up this frag at my LFS last week just to see if it would grow in my tank. I forgot to ask what it was. I think a zoanthid. Does it look ok...?

It's a brown button polyp. They will grow really fast! So put them where you don't mind a bunch of them. And towards the bottom of the tank.

I have it about halfway up in the tank. I don't really have good reef lighting so I figured I would put them as close to the top as possible. Do they need strong light?

No. Depending on what you have currently they may or may not need stronger lighting.

just running a 76 LED light with some blue mixed in. I used it on my fresh water tank. I'm sure it's not made for salt. It sits about 2 inches off the surface so I figured it might be enough light for at least this kind of coral

It may be. You'll have to wait and see. If they grow very tall as if they are reaching for light, and stay brown, you'll know you need more. They should pick up color if they are in the right light.

paid 10$ for it...The light is a beamswork led. Works great for my fresh water but not sure how good it would be for this coral. I have had the frag for a week and it does look like it has grown....
