ID Please.. Is it a mushroom??

After a few months I have not put anything new in the tank.. And then this shows up.. At first it looked like a polyp. Then it got bigger and has octopus like arms and long tentacles. It eats very well and grows rapidly. I have not started paying much attention to it till now. I at first thought it might be a walking dendro.. but I dont think so now. I have never seen a mushroom that looked like this. I have enclosed photos of different angles..
Oh and now it is about the size of a quarter, but with feeding I see that it rapidly grows.

Anyone???


It held up side down

Long tentacles vsible..

Thanks in advance...

Vinny

Pics are in my public album if they are not showing up.
They should be showing up though...
I have tried another forum and I had no one ID it there
I was hoping for some luck here.

It does look like a LPS.

Wave you hand over it to try and make the it retract, you should be able to see a coral skeleton
