Unknown leather - has simularites to kenya tree

Ok. This is a small leather that came attached to one of the live rocks I got off of a guy last week who was tearing his system down. When I asked him what it was all he could tell me was that it was a green tree coral.

The stalk is a dark color with a hint of green in it.

I'd go with Capnella or colt. Hard to tell from that pic.

Hm, I was looking thru my books thinking it might be a Nephthea

Kevin what would you need to get a better idea? Closeup on the polyp?

IMO, it would be very difficult to distinguish between Capnella and Nepthea, bot are genus of the Neptheidae family. Not real sure, a close up of the polyp, one branch and another pic when it is completely open would be helpful, maybe.

It is as open as I had seen it in that photo. I have only had it a week but thats about as open as I think it gets.

I just moved them to the 45 so I will try to get som emore pics later.

I'd say almost definitely capnella...especially with the hint of green. And the kind of wrinkled looking stalk looks very much like a capnella that just needs a little time in a good spot to really beef up. Is it kind of firm like a capnella?

Here is another photo that might help better. I moved it over to the 45 and it seems the light is brigher over there.

Ok. Then Capnella it is.

One less life mystery to solve.
