Palythoa sp.

Button Polyps make a nice addition to your reef, and there are different kinds. These are Palythoa, which are recognized by the solid mat that these individual polyp heads extend from. When touched, they slime like crazy, so avoid disturbing them if possible. Palythoa Toxin is considered dangerous to human touch; wash your hands after handling. I've had no problems personally, and shared numerous frags of this coral in the past.
