    It is a pretty coral and grow quite quickly but can also become a bit of a weed later on.

    Yeah, though it doesn't sting at all and doesn't overgrow as much as stuff like star polyps. Really pretty coral.

    Almost but that noise is easy to get rid of, a small bump in the back and its gone.
    Star polyps on the other hand spread like crazy and are a huge mission to get rid of.
    Not to mention how they can kill other coral just buy irritating them so much.
