    Default pure white polyps

    i picked this up at the lfs for 20 bucks. i liked the variety. i have 2 questions though. there are pure white polyps with a neon green mouth. is this normal coloring or are the polyps bleached out? also could some one tell me what the long tubes on the left are? the guy at the lfs didn't know either. i looked in my books and found nothing. any ideas?

    I had some like that. The white ones eventually turned a very tan /pinkish color, so I think mine were bleached out. They had the green mouths as well. Good luck with them. They do grow fairly fast.

    Sure, We've got snake polyps in two tanks here, one with very low flow and lower PC lighting (where the seahorses live, and some on another tank that has over 10 watts per gallon of MH lighting and a LOT of flow (turn over rate for the tank is almost 20 times per hour).... they don't seem too upset in either tank and have been doing their thing for over a year now.
    Every electronic device is manufactured with smoke stored deep inside... only a true genius can find a way to set it free.
