Hi,

I just got this coral and was wondering if someone here can tell me what it is so I can figure out what's the best way to care for it:

The polyps pull into the stony looking part. At first I thought they're zoas but they don't have the discs in the centre that I saw on other zoas.

Thanks very much in advance!

Looks like a Blue/green sympodium to me. I have never had them but have seen them for sale.

Yup, Sympodium. It can be fast growing, but isn't generally invasive like GSP, Xenia, or Sansibia. It seems to prefer subdued lighting. Under strong light it bleaches (to a very pretty bright blue, but still, not good) and eventually dies back. Keep it under mid-low light and flow and you should be in good shape.
