    hi guys so i came across a cool image on deviant art but neither i nor the artist know wat it is, my suggestion was zoa but it has alot of little feeler/tenticle things within the middle of it so its kinda weird and it seems to have an opening there? o.0

    Great looking coral, definitely not yellow polyps though.
