Got it in an assorted coral pack so I don't know the name. All I know is it does not look normal.Click image for larger version

That is a dead favia frag. There is no tissue left and algae has grown through the skeleton.

It seems part of the coral is still alive or something. There is this thing that comes in and out of a tiny hole in the coral and I have no clue what it is. Click image for larger version

Looks like a feather duster to me, not living tissue of the coral.
