How is this thing surviving?

Just started my tank 13 days ago. I have a couple corals that came on the live rock (I assumed they would not live through the cycle) that seem to be doing well. So first question is, what kind of coral is this. And the second question is how is it surviving the cycle?

The live rock came from a LFS here in South Florida. They said the rock was aquacultured off Tampa Bay. The rock came with all types of stuff, mostly that I can not identify. There are a dozen feather dusters, Brain Coral, that branch coral of some sort, brittle stars, etc.....I am just suprised that the coral in the picture seems to be doing well.

If its a low light gargonian then filter feeding should be enough to keep it alive but obviously supplementing the correct elements/flow/lighting and it should take off...great find by the way
