OK it was not easy, I took this picture through a jeweler's loupe and 2 magnifying glasses all hand held, try that sometime.
Of course here the thing does not have the polyps extended because I sucked it up in a baster looking thing and put it in a tiny dish. make believe the polyps are extended as they do in the tank.
I Lied, it is an eigth of an inch, not a quarter.What do you think the chances were of me finding this in a 6' long tank?

I got it, they are colt corals. The thing is re producing. When they extend their polyps they look exactly like the adult.
Mystery solved

As well as can be expected!

I love all those gobies you have in your little piece of the ocean! Must be so much fun to watch them.
