Hey Franske, I know exactly what you mean, IIRC I think it is called African Bush Coral or something, a type of Cespitularia. Mine was in the tank for exactly 2 days before the hermits helped themselves to all of it. Very pretty though!

It looks like a xenia species. I know exactly what you are talking about because a freind has some in his tank. It looks like "Blue Xenia". At least that what I have been calling it. It does great under pretty strong lighting and grows like a weed once it settles. My friend has it all over his back glass. I though about going to get some as well.
