I wish I had gotten a close-up. Thank you for adding yours.
The large spherical objects near the center of the colony are gonozooids. Apparently this species does not release free-swimming medusae as most hydriods do. See reefs.org page for good detail with diagrams. Search for Garveia annulata on the page.
