looks like sinularis "rasta leather" to me

jesus villaseņo 11-24-2007 03:55 PM

the mushroom anemone is a ricordea and the coral is a variety of sinularia

Oh I'm pretty darn confident that it's sinularia. Polyps are not extended in the pic. Ive got two just like it. Well each are about 10 times the size of that one.
