About 2 months ago i got a frag of a green, purple tipped and polyped monti from Ming. I placed it in a tank with some regular old green monti caps that had light brown polyps. About a month ago the polyps on my basic montis changed to purple just like the new monti that I got. Nothing else changed in my tank, no new lights no crazy chemistry changes or anything.

Has anyone ever seen Zooxanthellae transfer from one coral to another?

I really want to share this with someone, does anyone in the Park Slope area have a really good macro camera so that i could post some pics here an on RC. I'm really confused as to why this is happening.
