    I also think its Euphyillia paradivisia. This family is quiet large; so easily mistaken. Could also be E divisia.

    I agree with sunburst.

    It's definitely not a torch/E. glabrescens, since there's branching on the tentacles.

    Def not torch
    torch tenticles are thinner and longer thats a given....
    And im kinda leaning towards what i said that it is a froggy!
    Mark has the same coral and reckons it is a frog spwan?
