I need an ID on this green coral!

Ok experts...

What is this green, branching soft coral? It grows like weeds in my tank! I bought a smallish piece a couple years ago and now this.

thanks!

Green Sinularia sp. is my first guess - looks great, and if you were closer I would inquire about a frag...

I have the same coral, but it has not taken to my tank. I wish mine looked like yours.

Kenya tree, neon green finger coral... They all look fairly similar. It's just a bit odd to me. How can you have this growing in your tank for years without knowing what it is?

This one of the nicest soft coral. Im looking for a small piece of this one.
Australian spaghetti leather I believe is the name.

It's a sinularia. I had had one 15 years ago and they are great. Have long since gone SPS, but clones are alive and well still to this day. In a friends 750 gallon, there must be 100lbs of them now. No exaggeration!
