So I picked this up at jacks and as normal they had no clue what it was, but it seemed to be priced pretty cheap for the size, and I liked it. Any clue what it is? Im pretty sure its a stubby fingered leather, just need reinforcement, the polyps are brown when opened.

do you have a picture of it in the tank and opened up? Looks like a finger leather, but I need to see it open to be 100%

Not yet, just put it in a couple hours ago and it has not opened up yet, and the lights are already out for the night because I just switched to MH so I am slowly working my lighting cycle back up so nothing gets bleached.......

Take a picture when it's fully opened tomorrow, and post back here. That'll give me a better idea of what it is.

Curiosity got the best of me, so I flipped the light on for a few and woke everyone up, here are a couple more pictures I got, still not opened fully but probably the best I am going to get until it gets better acclimated to the tank.

PS: Sorry for the bad pics, I have yet to get a macro lens, I seem to always spend all my money on coral.....

Devils hand/finger leather... same thing, different common names.
