Neither of them is a cladiella soft-coral, Goodisor.... shows you what LFS's know....
Hey there Jaquesb.Are you(or anyone for that matter) able to id that second coral for me yet.I still am not sure what it is.I have taken a small clip,not such good quality but it might show shape and colour a bit clearer.Let me know what you think.I started on the Kenya tree and then over to it.

Goodisor - sorry man - but the video is a wee bit out of focus..... Would you possibly be able to take a hi resolution close-up still photo for me? I would really appreciate it.
Yeah it is quite bad.My cellphone doesnt take such good pics and my digital cam is in for repair.Sorry Jaquesb.I'll have to wait a bit.Any guesses as to what it is....You say definitely not a cladiella?
