I have this growing in my 2g nano, it is very thin and wiry clumps and the color in the pics is a good representation. This pic is a lil smaller than a golf ball.

It's beautiful. It looks like fine coralline algae cluster. (http://www.live-plants.com/corallinefine.htm) I would love to grow some.

It does look like the branching coraline we see in the Keys a lot. I've brought some home a couple of times and it hasn't survived past a month or two. If that's what you've got... congratulations!
