I have this one in my tank too, pretty tough coral and they grow real fast. Yours will look like mine in no time.

The bottom piece came from the top one. I even had another piece that came from the same colony that I just gave away.

This sinularia is neon green, any chance this is Palau Nepthea?

sinularia and nepthea, while related, are two markedly different species
