I split this from a derailed topic.
Xenia is a real menace. Some like it. When conditions are right it will overtake your tank. It sporadically dies and makes a real mess. Your green polyps could be green star polyps. Very prolific and grows ultra fast. They may have been zoas, both would suit your tank perfectly.
i like the look of zenia...but i dont see it overtaking our tank. it spreads so slowly in ours.
