I think they are palythoas. I don't see much in the way of skeleton that you'd see with a candycane. The color also leads me to think paly. I'd expect a bleached candycane to be white, where I had some "volunteer" palys that came up as off white, quickly turned the brown in the pic, and eventually green and copper.

Nope, they're a pretty hardy coral.. medium/low light, medium/low flow, just keep up with regular tank parameters maintenance and they should do just fine

Did you get it on their Black Friday special? I saw that was listed. I bought the same one about a year ago. I think it's the best deal you can find on a refractometer anywhere.

Just remember that the packing peanuts kept it from getting broken by UPS or the post office. I know that they're annoying when they get everywhere. I think shredded paper is worse. I used to work for a retail store where the shipements were always packed in shredded paper from the distribution center. That stuff went EVERYWHERE! The yahoos who ran the company were too cheap to buy us vacuum cleaners to boot.
