      Can You Identify This Colony?

      The polyps are white with green mouth.

      More than likely palythoas although it’s hard to tell with the strong blues on. Handle them with caution.

      Does anyone else notice that rarely do lfs reps ever help with advice?

      To be honest they look like palys of some sort however they were either closed up for a long time or starved of light and they lost there zooxanthella algae which contributes to there color loss.

      I had some Grandis palys that fell into a rock structure and I couldnt get them out without breaking down so I left them when I did break down they weren't dead but looked very similar. They are now colored back up and doing great but took a lot of time.

      It's really hard to tell from the pictures but might be a protopalythoa that is either coming back from almost dead or on their way out. Could you possibly get a better picture?
