Pocillopora Planulae

In this section, I've taken shots of some growing polyp bails from a Pocillopora. The colonies settled on a powerhead in Figure 1 and are growing out quite nicely. My current theory is the bails were produced by stinging from a near by Faviid. I tried to replicate it with a Stylophora (which is in the same family). I have yet to see any new colonies from that.

Figure 2 is another settled colony on the back glass. This colony has grown to half dollar size in 4 months.
