Hi all,
few days ago I found this frag in the aquarium store.
The lenght is about 1 inch with iridescent colors.

I know the photos are not the best but hope this is enough for you.

Thanks in advance,

Looks like clove polyps with an encrusting monti or lepto on it.

could possibly be a chunk off the side of a green nepitha. does it have a skeleton with thin skin or is it soft through? The irridescent green with nubby brown polyps look like a baby branch starting to form.

(You usually see these sold as cut branches but if it was cut off of the rock and the base left over healed this is what I would expect to see)

green looks like mushroom encrusting anthelia or glove polyps
