ID on small coral polyps

These are the best picture I could get. They look little little flowers, smaller than a pipe organ and the encrusted base is flat. I left the zoo in the picture to get some perspective of the size.



I tried to zoom in a bit.

Those are way cool!!!! If you can get a frag...I'd love some if we get a break in the cold, I'm north of you.

They appear to be clove polyps (Clauvularia sp.).

The do look a lot like clove polyps, but are much smaller than any I have ever seen.

Do you know how to frag them? If so, let me know and I can send some your way. I might have to hit you up for some zoos some day though.

if they spread quic...one of my favorite ways to frag (and easy too) is to set a piece of rubble right next to them...or smack dab in the middle of them and let them do their thing...then just remove the rock
