What's up guys, I was at my lfs today and saw a coral I like. The guy told me it was a flowering star polyp but when I looked it up it didn't look the same. The one i am referring to in the picture is the turquoise colored one with the palm tree type polyps. I just want to be suret what coral it is so i can do some research before I buy it. Thanks for the help!!!

Thank you! Sorry I thought it was an LPS my bad.
I don't know how to quote two people at once, but thanks to both of you.

It looks like some type of Clavularia sp. "Clove" polyps is just a generic name given to a wide variety of corals that kind of look the same. Some of which can become quite a nuisance while others are pretty easy to maintain.
