Hello fish friends,

I picked up this frag the other day and am unsure of it's ID. It was labelled as a torch, but I had my doubts because its tentacles are so short, but being new to Euphyllia I asked a member of staff who confirmed it is a torch. Could I get confirmation?

It is not in a very good place in the picture, I moved it to an area with more flow.

It's not a torch, it's a hammer coral just doesn't have defined head tips. I do have one that does this same thing, as odd as it is it's different. Torch has long tentacles with a tip that's different in color but is still the same size as the tentacle.

Check out my thread "New Additions" further on down the LPS list and you will see a few of each in my tank.
