    I recently got a new frag and came home to find these brownish looking things. Are they aiptasia? Can the frag be salvaged or should I throw the whole thing out?

    Looks like aptasia to me. You could bust off a chunk of that plug that doesnt have any and chuck the rest. Just wear some gloves and wash your hands

    Looks like yellow star polyps.
    Aphasia is brown.

    Yellow sand polyps. I think they’re worse than aptasia. Get them out before they take hold. I had them and they will cover everything.

    Yep, yellow sand polyps not star polyps. Sorry it's been many years since I have seen them.
