What color is the flesh? Got a pic? Actually sounds like it might be an encrusting gorgonian species. Briareum Stechei looks identical to a GPS.

Steve, are those GSP or the Briareum? Here is a pic of what I have in my tank. The mat is deep purple
EDITED POST: Okay steve, well I just found them in Aquarium Corals on page 157 and 158, and I definately think that its the gorgonian rather than green stars. Kudos to you big time for the discovery.

Mine is a Briareum, great coral but it grows like a weed and will quickly smother others so be very careful of placement. It is extremely hard to frag until it branch's. If it starts creeping too close to something you can either place a smaller rock in it's path a create a new frag or it will need to be "removed" from the bothersome area which can be a bit unnerving. It does not peel off, you actually need to rip it 8O

Good luck
Cheers
Steve

I luckily have it on a rubble bed, as far as fragging goes, I assume lifting a piece of rubble with new growth and then running a razor along the seam is sufficient?

Sharp scissors work well too.
