I have a bad habit of buying stuff even when I have no clue what they need

Picked this guy up for $20 because the look was absolutely beautiful. Currently have it sitting in a low-med flow area towards the bottom

At first I thought it was a leather of some sort (I really have no clue how to Id 90% of things) then I thought maybe an lps of some sort

My lfs always has the weirdest coral for great prices

Can't believe this guy was so cheap but they want $80 for a generic hammer and $120 for a torch

From what I understand the "magic carpet" pattern specifically references multi colored polyps and is more of a hype marketing term

They're all rodhactis mushrooms, and carpet mushroom is not something I can actually pin down

Although I will say this one has a very pretty pink/green pattern and I will be henceforth naming this combo The Fairly Oddparent mushroom
