Hi folks. I bought this frag at a local store because it looked unusual and i tbought it might be a fire coral (Millepora)...because i couldnt see any polyps...and it had a kind of silvery sheen to it ... but today i saw it with tiny polyps out...and now im wondering what it might be.

Anyone know of a coral like this?

Thanks in advance.

It is an Octocoral = soft coral (have eight tentacles on each polyp), but has a hard skeleton of iron salts (therefor blue).

Are your corals ever subjected to the open air with no water for water changes or tank maintenance?
