    I have three corals here that I wanted to see if I could get a more accurate identity check on. These aren't the greatest pictures but it's the best I can get... (I'm currently uploading some video of these as well...)

    #1 - the purple and green one towards the top?

    #2 - small "waving hand" polyps?

    #3 - Frogspawn or Torch?

    OK so here's a question... I've had that first one (the frogspawn) for about two weeks now and it's looked like that the whole time. Do they not have the longer tentacles when they're this small or has it really been closed for this long?

    Should extend out, where have you placed it? Lighting? Flow? What are your levels too?

    I've had it in 4 or 5 different places now, different lighting, different flow. Now it's on the frag rack with the rest of the small corals. Light flow and med light. EDIT: I just put it on the rack 2 days ago, so it's possible it might perk up there yet.

    Levels are all good, all the normal ones anyway. Nothing's changed in weeks as far as that's concerned. Everything in the tank seems to be growing well and thriving.

    Try putting it in a very low flow area and leave it alone for a few weeks

    Ok. That's basically where it is now.
