is this Frogspawn? i hope

so i was looking though the LR at my LFS, and came across a small, maybe fist sized, piece of LR, and what caught my eye was this small coral, it was retracted, but was a nice, bright green color. i asked and one of the workes said it was a small frogspawn. so i bought it, it weight half a pound.


these were taken about 20 minutes after it was placed in the aquarium, so i dunno if it will open up more or what will happen.




and the best part....





so this is frogspawn, right?

You are correct and not a bad price at that. They will grow fast so keep enough space between them and corals of a different type. Corals of the same family can be kept closer together without a problem.

probably as potent a sting as those yellow polyps in the photo.

Agree with Torch. Very similar to frogspawn though. Like Sadie said, they (all euphyllia) have potent sting and long sweepers. Be careful about things that are placed near it. Great buy though!!! They go for $15-20 a head around here.
