Tried but just can't identify this small coral.
What I already know is it's a member of the leather coral family.It only grows to about an inch in height.
Anybody?

looks like xenia to me which usually isn't that hard to identify, so that must mean I'm wrong. :)

Lol,i know it's not xenia.It's tiny compared to xenia and stays small,and xenia and it's relatives won't grow in my tank for some reason although I have tried many times to grow it.

It's Xenia, anthelia grows in a mat, not multiple polyps stalks like these.

I'm happy.It's doing well and sending out tiny runners.Problem is as you can see in the pic it's near a group of yellow zoas.The yellow zoas grow a lot taller so fingers crossed they don't overshadow it.
