So the attached image is a frag that a buddy of mine who runs an LFS gave me. In the store they were listed as "Yellow Brick Polyps"

They seem like Zoa's with a few noticeable differences, mainly being how tall/long they extend, and the length of the lashes. I'm just wondering if anyone has seen anything similar and can help me ID it? He said they spread pretty quickly as well.

Scientific name

Family: Parazoanthidae
Species: Parazoanthus gracilis

Note: The Yellow polyps have not yet been scientifically identified to the species level, or even to the genus level. So this is not a valid scientific name or classification for these zoanthids.
