    Hi guys. For the first time the other day I saw a zoanthid that I thought was awesome looking. It had an orange middle, teal circle around, and yellow fringes. Didn't catch the name and I should have taken a picture..but I'm thinking about some point possibly adding some to a 15 gallon that I have...just a few mushrooms and a fu manchu as current residents. most of my knowledge has to do with sps and softies...any input would be great as far as care tips, concerns...ID of above stated if possible..etc. thanks!

    Could also be the green bay packers one. They look a bit different under different lighting, mine is more green on the skirt than yellow but I can see that shifting or look different based on lighting and your eyes perception as some will say its yellow and others will say green. My green bay packers is more orange in the center and the middle can look a bit teal.

    Here is a pic of mine, the camera isn't showing the orange centers that well:


    If so, they are fairly common not a $30 a polyp type coral. Just average price $1-5 a polyp depending on who/where.

    He is in Mankato and has a fairly good selection. Here is a couple that I have picked up from him. Not all are opened as I took this right after the lights came on.

    My bad. I'm usually pretty good at avoiding the name just had a mental lapse. Just like the NFL on the Bryant catch at the 1 today.
