Gorgonian ID Help!

Hey all,

I picked up this gorg for a GREAT price, but the guy I got it from has no clue what kind it is. Judging from the fact it opened up its polyps after about 10-15 minutes under my light, I'm assuming it is photosynthetic, but a better ID would be awesome.

Looks like the purple, photosynthetic gorgonian that came with my TBS package two years ago. Mine is still alive; probably the easiest creature to care for in my tank. Interesting fact: one of its branches kept touching a rock, and now that spot is growing its own separate gorgonian!
