Pulsing Xenia
Frogspawn
Hammer

And I think they said the one that looks like a bush was a leather but I'm not so sure about that one.

All opened up nicely except the one that looks like a bush. It completely closed up and kinda curled up. I can't get a pic because the light settings now are in moonlight mode. It was opened earlier though as you see from the picture so I'm hoping it's just a night time thing.

The "bush" almost looks like a toadstool.

Hopes it ok...

It looks like its coming of the rock it came on. It's not in a high flow area. It's moderate flow an was opened nicely today.

That's it, that jarred my memory. They said a toadstool.

Wow, I actually am learning something! It will close up like that under low light. Will open back up in the morning. Also, mine goes days sometime without opening. BTW , you did great on the price. Any one could have cost that much.

Corals amaze me! As I'm typing it's opening up again! If you look closely at my horrible picture you can see it moved and it's starting to show the little tentacles .

The are really cool, but will get about a foot tall. I think carey has one in her 125 that is about 10-12 inches tall.
