    When this first popped up in my tank I had no idea what it was, then with the help of 3reefers, I was able to nail it down to fungia..i have shown this picture all over the place (LFS's and the web) but no one has ever seen one with quite the colors this one has...bright pink mouth, bright purple body, BRIGHT green, and pink tentacles things...I have 2 of them now...as you can see. Is there a certain type of fungia this may be? Do I have a new species of fungia growing in my tank out of no where?

    I believe that is the extremely rare bright purple bodied green tentacled pink mouthed fungia thingy, sorry I dont know the scientific name.;D. In reality I have no idea, but its pretty cool looking.
