    No probs, he looks black coz the lights are out, but his actually(wen not stressed) darkish grey in colour and yes they have a slight tint of red on the tips of there fins .... As for the coral, if you refering to the pic above then yes its a pincushion, but what's confusin me is you said orange and looks like a mushroom and pincushion doesn't look like that?
