Hello,

Saw this specimen at Petco (of all places!) labelled as "orange and green." (first picture) Is this perhaps lobophyllia? As a followup question are the growths on the side of this coral concerning? See second picture..

And on a similar thread, are these candy canes (third picture) in the worst shape ever are or some of them alright? The one on the left looks like someone nipped it when fragging.

Thanks!

Lobophyllia

Thanks! Are the things growing on the side of it a sign I should avoid the specimen or is this type of flowing algae/hand-looking things par for the course?

look like common feather dusters to me.

Ah yes, that makes sense. Thanks! I'm a little wary to consider specimens from them but I always enjoy peeking in the tank to see if there is ever a good deal...
