this is quite interesting. I'm wondering if you have tried to examin these when the lights are out? they almost look like some small kind of cup coral, maybe they'll produce feeders when the lights are out...

Im curious what they look like after a year or if Fishbone ever found out what they really were. There is alot of speculation on this thread but it lacks a final decision on what it is. That is awesome if it was baby Scoly id love to have one like that with multiple heads it looks very cool.

In the last picture he posted they almost look like baby acans. I didn't think they were zoas though. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they're bigger and are baby scollys but being there hasn't been an update, I'm doubtful.

Wild guess is that no updates means not baby scolymias...

In post #4 you can see tissue spreading from each head, they didn't have a skeleton, and close like a zoa. Scolys don't close like that. I think they were just zoas

Well the OP was last active on 4/30/2013, but didn't update thread.
My guess is the coral didn't survive.
I still say they were scoly babies though.

it was mis-classed as scolymia for years, but was recently updated.

However, everyone and their mother still (incorrectly) calls them scolys or donut corals.
