    Looks like a leather to me. Devils hand or something like that. Should have polyp extentions if it is.

    Could be a leather. Mine rarely shows polyps now.

    Definitely leather coral. Sinularia.sp. Possibly spaghetti finger leather.
    They don't like a whole lot of flow. How close is that Koralia?

    To frag it, just get a razor blade or pair of sharpe sissors and cut off whatever you want to frag.

    I also think it's a finger leather.
