    Default Need ID on LPS!!! (It's a short tentacle plate coral, about 3/4 the size of a dime)

    Picked this up at the LFS I thought it was a baby shroom in the tank so they sold it to me for 5 bux (normal price for random shrooms not attached to rocks), brought it home and when I dumped it in the container for a drip acclimation I heard it hit bottm. Thought to myself wow that was hard for a shroom, picked it up and found out it was a baby LPS, so I mounted it to some rubble and here we are needing an ID.

    No it is some type of branching LPS as it has a littler one next to it (couldn't get a pic from that angle). it also has a base below both of them right after they attach. The one in the pic is the size of or a little smaller than my pinky finger nail just for size comparison.

    Well cweber I had another vote for plate on a different site (CR IS STILL HOME just trying to ID this guy). But this other person said that they sometimes grow off of a larger plate in tiny clusters, so I guess we'll have to wait and see.
