Thanks for explaining that. I did find one I sort of like on ebay, she did include a pic of mother colony, crazy long tentacles so That would be good for the long tentacle one. Its also not real big, she said the mother is 7 inches tall counting tentacles and she has had it for years, she trims it back every 6 months and get 50 to 100 frags she said. It looks almost exactly like one let it reef posted but hers look like that with white light and blues it has green tenatcles and bluish body. The only thing scares me is in the pic it appears to have a flat and not wavy cap. She says it depends on its mood! Could it be tthat having almost weeping willow legth tenatcles that the wavyness dosnt show as much? Now I want a devils hand or a short tentacl one, either green or pink! @jeffchapok love his, got any frags? Love the one that looks pink orange and white! How as that sold, Just as a sarcophyton or toadstool? The one unique is calling Japenese looks lik e that sort of but green cap but coarl colored tentacles.Ok, the correct genus for toadstool is Sarcophyton. Japanese toadstool is just the name of a nice strain (or strains) that has both green polyps and capitulum. Its neither deep water or from Japan.
There's a lot of different varieties of toadstools in the hobby, but most haven't been given distinct names or lineages, or even identified as to species. Japanese, Tyree green, long polyp weeping willow, yellow fiji are a few. The best thing is to see one you like an adult of, and try to get a frag from it.
To tell Sarcophyton from Lobophytum can sometimes be difficult as they both can have upwards reaching "arms." The best way is that if the arms only involve the edge it is Sarcophyton; if the are arms sticking up from the middle, Lobophytum. Lobophytum is sometimes called devils hand, although Lobophytum is a better name.
edit: I don't know what Palau refers to in this context, sorry
