    Trying to figure out if these are indeed Blue Clove Polyps. 20200515_180243.jpg

    Can you grab a photo with some more white/daylight lighting? It's looking like GSP to me.

    Yeah I will when they come on. It's definitely not gsp. I don't have any of that. It's blue and looks like clove polyps, but I'll get a better picture here in a little bit.

    I have a sympodium colony in the tank and it is definitely different. Sympodium in my experience a slow grower and spreads out much different. This clove has very quickly spread across all my rock work.

    Here's another picture. The only place I can get a decent picture is a slightly shaded area so I don't know that I can get much brighter than this. These are tiny, maybe 2mm across, while the sympodium is 2-3 times that. 20200516_095422.jpg

    When I compare them to pictures online, they look exactly the same, so that's what I think it is for sure.

    Looks like blue snowflake polyps to me, if so they are more of a pest than anything else
