    I picked up this frag at SWE yesterday and they said it might be an eagle eye. It looks to me like there are two different types on the plug along with an Aptasia). Can anyone confirm the identification of the eagle eye or do I have something else? Also the other polyp on the frag I am assumiing it is not the same.

    Eagle Eyes or Watermelon zoanthid; basically the same zoanthid called by a different name.
    The green zoanthid is the Emerald Dragon Eyes.
    Both are very, very common zoas.

    Thanks Jason. I wanted to be able to label my pictures with the names.

    The one with the pink center looks like most of the watermelon zoas I have seen. Common but stunning. :)
