    Definetly Christmas Tree Coral. Keep it in the substrate - they prefer it there. This is a Non Photosynthetic Soft Coral, therefor light will not keep it alive - target feeding will.

    I suggest feeding it every second day with small filter feeder food such as Phytoplankton, Zooplankton or cyclopeeze. Do not get a "skrik" if it retracts into the sand, it will do that, but should not stay that way for days - then it is not happy and requires a little TLC.

    How is yours doing? If it opens up regularly, and you feed it likewise, it really is not a difficult coral to keep. Definetely one of the easier NPS to keep.
