Just a little side note about the GSP...they will grow onto anything the rock they are on touches and can spread like wildfire so position is important when placing them in your tank. I have mine on a large rock that doesn't touch anyother rocks to keep them under control. Just a thought....

Nice coral, though they aren't GSP's, they are zoanthids.

All species of zoanthid (that look like yours) are the same, they are just different colors.

There is a website that has the collective names of zoanthids, but they are just names for the color variations. The care is all still the same.

www.zoaid.com

Here is a shot of my GSP's, opened and closed. You can see how they spread with the mat. Yours are definitley zoanthids.

I 100% agree with Lindsay that they are not Green star polys. They are zoo`s and they are just as pretty and will do good in your tank. Moving this to New aquisitions forum.
