I'll wind up with xenia again (although a different shade then what you have) but it will be on a spaced away rock. For me at least xenia didn't spread through "chunks" the way anthelia did.
This was the color I had: Pulsing Xenia - YouTube

There are different species of xenia. Your's appears to be xenia elongata, which is different in appearance from the pulsating 'pom-pom' xenia umbellata.

Anthelia doesn't have thick stalks.

Light-deprived xenia will 'move' toward the light (they're actually mobile corals, albeit slow), rather than reach for it.
