Soft coral ID

Recommended Posts

Howdy! Can anyone help a newbie reefer out and identify this soft coral? It sways and almost pulses like a xenia, but I dont think its actually a xenia.  Once ID’d, any care tips would also be appreciated! I have a short video as well, might be easier to ID by the movement but it wouldnt let me upload.

 

Thanks!

Tim

Looks like goniopora to me……. which is not a soft coral.
Do you have a picture of it closed up? Goni’s have a stony base that each polyp can retreat inside.

Thanks! I do not have a picture, but I have seen it closed up and yes, looked like a stoney base.  If not soft coral, what kind is it?
