Paly completely changed color?

Has anyone ever had this happen? I have a polyp of shazaam that decided it wanted to stay closed for a couple of days and it finally reopened with a blue center, red ring, bluish/purple outer ring with a redish skirt.

Quite unfortunate that it went from a rainbow colored paly to this, but interesting and still nice looking. I am curious to see what the future polyps end up looking like.

I actually have 2 really cool palys that totally changed on me also. One still looks similar but it looked a lot cooler before, and the other one looks crappy now.

Did the babies of the morphs take on the morph's color or the color of the original?

That kind of stinks considering what it was, but still interesting nonetheless.
