Just wondering if anyone recognises the coral below? Saw this in the LFS, and when I asked they didn't know what it was either. Apparently it was in a tank at TMC labelled assorted soft corals.

You can't tell from the picture, but it's a dark purple colour, and although they're closed in the picture, I'm told there are little golden yellow polyps on the bumpy bits that you can just make out.

I really like it and would have bought it, but I'd like to know what it is before jumping.

Did the whole thing move about? Looks more like an LPS to me, it could be a cauliflower coral if it is a soft coral, think there called dendrophylia (spelling)
I should really sort this out!!
