Corallimorph, the Blue Discosoma species is now in SEQ

One of our fav invertebrate/corals, which includes all anemone species for our aquariums, is the mushroom varieties.

The variants of the Corallimorphs here is SEQ has always been, mostly only fluffy morphs, the ones with more of an anemone look then most other Corallimorphs and are all over the place.
The purple fluffy variant seems to be doing the best out of the more common 4 variants of fluffy morphs.

Roughly 8 to 10 years back now, two versions of the rhodactis morphs showed up here and are doing well and spreading to many sites, the green is doing very well and the other is not an overly pretty rhodactis and its not fairing as well as the green.

A great thing in my near 40 years here appreciating the SE aquarium marine life, is that the purple smooth skinned Corallimorphs are here!
So far I have only seen them at one site, but just like the rhodactis doing so well here now due to climate, they may be else where soon and all over SEQ, fingers crossed!

I got three large rocks with them on it from the community and place them else where to take off there as well. At a guess, there may have been between 10 and 15 thousand at that site.

These are pics of the community I found.
