Hello All,

Another what is it question:

<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8034602268/" title="DSC_1820_edited (640x426) by l8ndeb, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8460/8034602268_65726b9539.jpg" width="500" height="333" alt="DSC_1820_edited (640x426)"></a>

I'm thinking/hoping baby Sun Polyp. The thing is about the size of a 1/4 of a pencil eraser. Ideas??

Looks more like a dendro to me. Tubastrea tentacles are usually not clear like that.

+1 to dendro. Good find if it is!

Dendro would be good as well. I've got at least five of these things I've spotted so far. All about the same size.
Anything I would need to know/do to help these guys along if they are Dendros?

Looks like this. If it is they feed at night and like brine shrimp spot feeding a few times a month.

Hollister, thanks for the input, but I already have a Sun Polyp colony. I have had them for awhile now. Actually, that is why I was asking if the item in the pic might be Sun Polyp. Thought they might be "spreading out".

Anybody else care to comment?

I'm a sun coral freak. I have 5 including 2 black ones. If you have an established colony chances are one has spawned. My babies always get eaten by those darn hermits.
