Hard to tell from picture. Maybe a small cauliflower colt coral?

Are these corals invasive like the kenya or the xenia?

I haven't had any problems with them. Kind of a set it and forget coral.

Do I need to worry about placement? Do they sting other corals? It is close to a green polyp leather right now.

Thanks for the responses ladies n gents

I would move it away from the leather. I keep mine away from any mushroom leathers or finger leathers per liveaquaria.

Seems like mine is a different type of colt? The stems are short and it took over an entire rock

Yea, I have a few kenya trees and this looks nothing like the Kenya tree.
