Hi, I bought this peace of live rock and attached was this purple smudge looking stuff on it and a couple of days later it turned into this.

Could someone please help me identify this coral/polyp, as I am a Newbie to the hobby.

Thank you, in advance.:blush:

Where did you get the liverock?
Almost looks like the person cut off the xenia right before you purchased it, hence it took a while to open/grow abck

Not xenia. Xenia has distinct stalks and then polyps out of the stalk. That is anthelia. It does not pulse and forms a mat not stalks. Beware, it can spread extremely quickly and will grow over other corals.
