What classifies a soft coral? Sps and polyps? Or just leathers and kenyas and such?

my experience have been with polyps...namely clove polyps I know I had a tiger cowrie and a sea hare that ate these, I got rid of them before they had a chance at my other polyps but my clove polyp was the biggest softie I had at the time and I seen them actually eating it.....

Ill probably get rid of it even though it is really cool looking. I really like my zoas and plan to keep them! Ill just let him hang out in the sump for now.
