    Heliopora coerulea, blue coral. A lot of LR is dead skeletons of this species. Technically a soft coral with a skeleton.

    Yeah. Not the best looking coral there is, but it doesn't sting anything and doesn't grow particularly fast so just let it be. You'll see it shed slime like a leather occasionally.
