you have plenty of light ... Are you sure its a galaxea? Another pic would be helpful.. One when its closed would even be better for the ID.
My galax is about 5" below the surface to get maximum lighting...

ill try to get a pic of it when its closed. it kind of looks like cauliflower when its closed. Like buds of folded-in tentacles. Looks nothing like the one next to it. The buds also are multiple, not just one that contains all of the tentacles/polyps. At night a few tentacles grow to 2-3 inches instead of the 0.5 inch tentacles in the day.

THANKS

P-MAN

THose 2-3 inch tentacles are probably sweeper tentacles, aimed at anything close by that it can sting.

If its a galax that is a real nice dark colored one with long polyps... All the ones I have seen are a light bright green with light tips with shorter thinner polyps..
the galax is a encrusting type coral and it will not have single heads like a torch. They will all be touching and grow in lets say a sheet but the will have single heads on the sheet where the polyps come from.
Ill have to post a pic of mine all closed up..

If you mess with the coral it will close up tight so you can get a good pic.
