Got some polyps. Pics inside.
Well it started out with a mushroom that I got on store credit but today I went and got some polyps. Im not completely sure what kind they are though so if anyone could help me out I appreciate it. A lot of them are already opened up which is awesome! Here are your pics.

brown zoanthid sp.

what kind of lights and bulbs do you have?

OF2F, I think were thinking on the same page here. I think under proper lighting, those Zoanthids may start to color up a bit.

I have them under 130 watt power compacts. They are in a 20 gallon long tank. after a few days i may move them up higher towards the light if need be.

what im talking about is actinics, they may make the polyps color up a bit for you.

How big/small is this tank?

closeyetfar 02-20-2009 06:20 PM

It is a 20 gallon long tank. 30x12x12 are the dimensions.

hmm... should be plenty of light, Perhaps that's just the color they are suppose to be... or they could be a little stressed and will color up in a few days...
