I'm not sure the polyps are correct. I don't know asteroides, but I think from what i've seen on the interwebz that asteroidies polyps are much like the Pacific lobata/lutea, and my polyps look nothing similar. (i don't have a macro lens unfortunately).
Maybe in the next few days I'll look for time to photograph the coralites.
Okay sounds good. I'll take another when it fully opens up today. The lights just came on so it's half closed upyeah that’s definitely one or another Porites. (if you say Asteroides, I believe you).
my polyps don’t look like that; if I have time once they get a lot of other things out of my way, I’ll try to get a macroish shot....
The effect can only be seen in dim blue/uv lighting. I know that mine is very nice under blues too and the green really stands out, but it's specifically the glow that is missing when the tank is very dark and you can see the fluorescence.Here is a photo from just now in my tank. Not sure it is the same as others have shared, but maybe it will help as these are slightly better than the others I have shared (blue lights are on, but the fact they change with the blue/UV makes me wonder).
