    Polyps also stand out. They glow green under actinics but look just brown under daylights.

    Yeah, I love those evil eyes. I found them at my lfs, on this random piece of rock rubble, hidden and forgotten at the bottom of a DT. Got them for free, and have recently split them into 3 frags to maximize growth!

    Just picked up some zoos from the LFS, they're our first corals. The frag on the left was a freebie, I think they're people eaters of some kind, unfortunately they're out of focus in this pic. They're both sweet under the actinics, can't stop looking at them. :mrgreen:
