I got this coral sold to me as a frogspawn. I'm wondering if it's an octospawn and whether it can be called blue or it's a different colour. The actual colour is as it appears in the pic. Thanks in advance.

I think it's an octospawn, even though it's not fully extended. Octospawn have much thicker tentacles than Frogspawn and more tips per tentacle than FS does. Hope this makes sense.

Doesn't look like a yaeyaemensis to me, thinking it's just a normal frog. Any more pics?

Here's a better more close-up pic showing the polyps after it fully opened. It was described as an orange frogspawn but it looks more bluish-grey than orange.

Still not seeing the structure, so it's either a wall (e. divisa) or a branching (e. paradivisa) frogspawn.

Oh sorry I didn't mention this is branching. Can it be described as platinum in colour? Here's a macro shot showing some polyps.

Thanks Tweaked. As usual your identifications are spot on.
