Did you see the first pic? That's the only one that I (and Red) were talking about, in the next pics you can clearly see it's a toad.

In the first pic, there could have been a calcified stalk for all we knew, which was the question.

It's the first pic I looked at. No issues, I was just mentioning that the stalk wasn't stoney, nor branching. That kind of removes it from most LPS shaped corals like this.
