Yep that's what I was talking about for the large polyp acan. I'd say its one of the two but if you could get a picture of it while its open and showing a feeding response that could help out some more.

Yeah I've had it for a few weeks and it's eaten mysis before. The LFS guy said it was the last day it was staying in the shop b/c he was planning on putting it in his own home tank! Hoping to see it eat silversides eventually too.
