    I think there are differences personally, like the corporation on the skirts. I think they are extremely similar though. Had a good talk with Manoj about this subject. Maybe get his take too.

    They are actually zoanthids, often mislabeled as palys . Most zoanthids are mislabeled as palys. Also the CAO are the exact same polyp as the Bowser IMO. The CAO was on ZOAID for the longest time until one day it was replaced by the Bowser. I guess it could yield more money with a new name .

    I was told the oranges and the bowsers were the same exact thing......and probably came about exactly like you said, new paly=more $$$$
