Picked this up today in the valley at an aquarium outlet. I mistakenly thought it was a monti cap, but I wanted it anyways, been eyeballing it in a nano tank for the last 3 weeks. It also has yellow around the edges. If anybody has any tips about caring for it, that would be cool. Right now I have it in the sand at the front of the tank with heavy water flow.

It has polyps? When will they come out? I was wondering what the little yellows dots were all over it.

Great pic with your Goby in there!

Yup it has polyps- give it time, and with the right conditions, they will come out :) Keep in mind, they are small polyps, so look close ;)

Very nice piece, Bob!

Question though... Does anyone know the difference between the Turbinaria Peltata (Pagoda Cup), and the Turbinaria Reniformis (Scroll Coral)? This looks very similar to mine and I was led to believe that mine was a Scroll.

I had what I thought was a pagoda cup and it did not take the shape that the one in the above picture has. Mine looked more like a saucer.

Maybe one species stands upward and the other doesn't? Dunno. Anyways, the Goby just had to be in the picture, it was a very lucky shot.
