Palm tree polyps with a zoa in the middle question

Hi all I think the closed up polyp that looks like a donut is a zoa? Click image for larger version

That isn't a zoa, but there are other heads that aren't opening that are far away from your 'donut'. So, that would not be the cause for them being closed. Have you tried adjusting the flow around them?

What do you think it is? I've adjusted the flow for the Palm to open but that donut one doesn't want to open...

It looks like a sponge most likely, not a polyp. It doesn't look like it is bothering the coral.

Well that sure is a button polyp. You could separate them if you wanted to do so.

If you have bone cutters, just cut the rock underneath it and glue it somewhere else.

Well I cut the frag in half but with they way the palm trees grow with the stems growing like a carpet I can't separate the button from around it not sure how far I can go without damaging them?
