Huge button polyps

Just had to share. Scored this for $40. It's almost 6 inches long.

Scored these for $40. It's almost 6 inches long. The smallest polyp is the size of a dime, not including its "feelers". Biggest is at least the size of a half dollar. What do you think? Good buy?

Not a deal really, but a pretty good purchase! How many polyps? If you had bought a small frag, you would have had a colony in no time! Definitly fast growers

8 bulb? Wow! Ya most palys grow quick. Youll have double that in another 3-4 months. Keep them very very low

8 bulb is alot of light. Depending on what corals you have, most will need to be atthe bottom of the tank. I have a 6 bulb and i burn most anything that i put up too high
