    Hey guys, I walked into my basement earlier today to take a look at my tank, and when I got down there I noticed that my Cinnamon Polyps were closed quite a bit.

    Hi. I bought an established tank from someone. They told me that these were polyps. But I think that they might be a type of pest anemone? What do you think?
