What is the pink fuzzy coral in the middle? Pic taken when the lights just came on, it gets much fuller and fuzzier.

Hard to tell, but maybe some kind of soft/leather coral.

I think it's a LPS coral....I think. It recedes to a dimpled hard surface.

Heres another view

looks like gsp to me. Can and will grow/spread like a weed if not kept in check

thanks for the input fellas.

It grows very slow, I must have the wrong lights(t5), either the spectrum is wrong or the intensity is wrong - because it took a year to grow the size of a half dollar.

It would take 10 years at the current rate.:strange:

Encrusting gorgonian,
No question. Strange it's a slow grower for you. Had some years ago that was taking over my tank.
