Question about a coral name

There is a coral that i saw at the LFS but keep forgetting to ask its name. I see growing on mostly the glass of the aquarium. It's sways side to side it looks like a rug of green grass. I think it's like greenish brownish in color also I saw a clownfish hosting it. Anyone know what it's called? Is it expensive?

Thanks

Most likely a green haddoni carpet anemone. Not a coral, invert. If it is rather large, it can be very expensive.

Then i'd say green star polyps. But are you sure you saw a clown hosting that stuff? Maybe it was just swimming through it at the time rather than "hosting" it?

Green lawn, and rug of green grass would make anyone think green star polyps(GSP). So that's my vote. Clownfish host anything if they feel like it, so it wouldn't surprise me that they were hosting that stuff.

+1 for GSP, a lot of people put it on the glass and let it grow (for whatever reason idk, id think itd be cooler like a real carpet like those awesome bonsai FW scapes)
