Button Polyps. Also revered to as zooanthids or Zoo's for short.

A fair amount of light. That you already have with the 260Wattas over the 55. Some feed phytoplankton to them but they will basicly get food from what they can capture thru the water and from th elight.

A very nice color they are with the green and yellow centers. Good catch.

Most button polyps will if you place a rock nearby and feed heavily so they grow.

As a side note, is it only my computer that your avatar slows to a crawl? Would it be too much trouble to change? thx. (it is cool tho)

also as a side note.. zoos and palythoa are poisonous and the poison will absorb through your skin or an open cut. I have experienced it first hand (I have several colonies of both zoo's and palythoa) one time while handling them to place some new colonies in my tank. My arm started feeling very warm in the water, and then hot. I then felt sick and nauseous. I started running a fever and called the poison hotline.. anyway I lived, but felt like crap for a few days after, I also had swelling in my hand and arm.. There have been people die from palythoa poisoning.. I don't want to freak you out, nobody told me and I had to learn the hard way.... They don't like a ton of flow either....
