Hey Now,

I have had a hard time identifying this soft coral. Does anyone know the scientific name of this guy? In my research it seems to be an Azooxanthellate which lives in the sand and attaches its pale coloured base in the sand almost like roots. This coral does have a pale/whitish base. Closest I have found is a Studeriote.

Any help would be appreciated!

Take care,
Jared

Looks like a feather colt coral to me.

Looks a lot like a colt to me as well, which would be photosynthetic leather.
