I believe it's either a candy cane or Duncan. LFS told me it was a Duncan.

That's blasto merletti. At that size it's worth about the same as a candycane, but a duncanops would be worth more. Now blasto wellsi, which has much larger polyps, is much more valuable.
You'll like the merletti. It's a fast grower, and will end up looking like a bouquet of flowers. It will take meaty foods also.
