Oh yeah- buddy ripped out some of his hammer coral and gave me 9 heads for 40$ (what a steal!) it's about 6 inches when fully open.
They look fantastic!

I didn't know that they came in different colors.

What kind of mushroom is that? Is it a light green color? Hard to tell from the pic but it looks just like the piece that was given to me a couple weeks ago. I just have no idea what it is. LOL

The mushroom is orange and yellow. Called a Yuma. The greenish large thing is a toadstool. I accidentally called it a mushroom. Lol

Ok, that makes a little more sense. The coral my frag was cut from was a good 12" in diameter. For that reason, I made sure I put my frag towards the back of the tank. I was afraid that I woud never see anything behind it. LOL

Do you think the mushroom could be closed up more because of the placement in the tank? Maybe it doesn't like it in that particular spot,

This is a guess on my part but.....

The way the polyps are openning would make be think it is happy in it's spot.

Hmmmmm, you're right, maybe it is still getting over the move.
