    That would be part of the Clavulariidae family.

    You could call it Rupert but I think it prefers to be called Anthelia

    +1 for Anthelia. Not the usual species we see imported. I've seen this species in northern Mozam before though.

    From what I know some have great difficulty keeping them, they hate high temps and like a dose of iodine.
    I've not seen them grown like Xenia weeds yet ?

    Very much like Xenia IME. I've seen them reach plague proportions in some tanks. Growing all over the glass and SPS.

    Movement and it is different from the one you see regularly, then i like them it looks like hands open and close. Just image if they can grow at the back ( panel ) the hole tank think it would look out of this world.:thumbup:.
