    Here's some "zoanthids."  I really like polyp corals -- they are easy to keep and care for;  they aren't extremely light dependent, meaning that you can keep them under PC's; and they spread throughout your tank when conditions are right, making a beautiful aquascape.

    These are some Brown Polyps that I picked up a while back that have spread to several neighboring rocks:

    I have a lot of polyps.  I've given quite a few of them away, as they have taken over plain rocks.

    This small rock was in the midst of all three different types of polyps I have.  Now, it has all three types growing on one small rock.  It's kinda cool -- and I just thought I'd share.
    ;D

    The brown polyp turn a green color when you have better lighting.
    Yellow polyps are also common.
