Coral on live rock

by gdeeber

I think I have Button Polyps on my live rock but I did not buy them. Could they have survived the trip from to my house and then be out of water for two days at least? I also have something growing on my rocks that looks like a plant but has no leafs just a stalk. I will post pictures of each thing.

you could have button polyps, or you could have aiptasia anemones. 2days outts water may be a bit long for a coral to survive, but those damn anemones will live outta water for a few days
