If majano's then yes. The clavularia or what looks to be clavularia is a soft coral and a keeper.

They are like aiptasia for the most part. Funny how our considered "pests" always grow the fastest and usually extremely durable.

Clavularia do not spread quickly and should be placed on the rockwork with medium light. The can be tricky in finding a good spot, but beautiful when they are in bunches.
