    Hey everyone, I was looking at my tank last night and I noticed the very small yellow polyps on my LR, they are everywhere (mostly under overhangs). Could these be baby suncorals?? Here are a few pictures, I don't have a zoom on my camara so the pictures aren't very good.

    8) That would be cool if they are.

    Mom looks great, do you target feed?

    Thanks everyone, I'll keep posting pictures as it grows. I target feed as many polyps as possible with cyclop-eeze, mysis and prime reef flakes.

    It sure looks that way! Those corals can be difficult to keep even though they like low light. Looks great. :)
