Milky Face Polyps

What does it mean when the polyps are white? I know it is still alive because I watch him eat but he sure looks different than the others...

Not quite sure what you are talking about in the picture? The polyp that is facing the camera? Looks just fine to me. My zoos colored up like that, whiter on the interior. I guess it's just a response to lighting changes. They have been alive and healthy and spreading quickly.

I agree. He looks great to me. Also there are so many different types of polyps that its hard to tell if he`s supposed to look like that.
