Of all places to grow!

Have a new growth in the middle of my polyps. Looks like a new feather duster. Can't believe that's where it's growing. Lol.

It is more common than you think. I have a meteor shower that has dusters all over it. They are actually encrusted in now and still doing great. Similar to Christmas worms.

Green Button polyp, a protopalythoa. They are fun to feed, as they eat just like a venus flytrap..... drop a piece of mysis on them and they instantly close up to eat it.
