    Possibly a montipora digitata frag, dunno, is it a soft coral, the base might suggest it is, in fact the base looks fleshy, almost worm like.

    Is it attached to the rock?
    Can you see any form of calcerous skeleton?
    Where did you get it?

    No not attached yet, still deciding if it stay in the Mantis tank or the Reef tank.

    No skeleton, definitely soft

    I got as a tanksitting gift, from a fellow reefer
