    I picked up this frag a couple weeks ago, its supposed to be a yellow leather with white polyps. Any ideas what it is? Also it is more of a tan than the photo shows.

    Agreed! Toadstool leather! I have a baby myself. Bought it from a LFS about 6 weeks ago and it has doubled in size. :D

    Thanks for the quick replys! Looks like i may end up moving it before it takes off since from the pics it will need more room to spread out. Which leaves me a space to add something that goes vertical!!!

    Does yours have a stalk to it? I just picked up something that looks just like it, but there wasn't a stalk to it, in fact, you could have told me it was a kidney bean and I would have believed you. Got it from a local reefer. I have pics of it at home that I have to get off of my digital camera, but it looks just like yours.

    Nope no stalk at all. Matter of fact i had to re-attach it yesterday because one of the Turbos bulldozed it off the rock i had it glued to. I did put it in a slightly brighter location which made the polyps extend even farther than before. Still no yellow to it at all. I emailed the guy i got it from but have recieved no reply yet.
