    Hi all, could some help ID this. Looks like a scolly but isn't soft at all.
    Colours are amazing but not really sure if it's meant to be the way it is.

    Yes, it looks like a scolly - it will probably inflate more over time.

    How long has it been in your tank?

    Been here a week. I picked it as a Scoly but then when I unwrapped it there were absolutely no soft tissue whatsoever. i had another feel today and still just solid. The colours are still vibrant but not sure what is going on. I've observed to see if it eats or changes in any way, shone a light on it after lights out but nothing. Doesn't look like it has receded anywhere. Has me stumped. Unfortunately I'm not really sure what scolys look like when they are on the way out as the couple I do have are plump and eat when I give them a couple pallets.

    Ok, so I was observing to see if this reacts at all when the lights ramp down and go into night mode and it did change.

    As the lights were ramping down the centre (I'm going to call it a mouth as I have no idea what I'm really talking about) was kind of "pointy" then as soon as the blues came on it went back down again.

    Still has me stumped if this is an unhealthy scoly or something else.
