I recently bought a rather large size rock from my lfs which had an assortment of coral on them (a few button polyps and some gsp). It so happened to come with a little hitchhiker crab that ate away at some of my gsp matting (which im still trying to catch btw) but to make a short story long when the gsp matting was cleared a little i noticed something odd at which i thought was the remains of the gsp. But at closer look it doesnt seem to be that at all, in fact to me it looks as if it is another coral of its own. I know the gsp matting is that purple color and when it flakes off it will usually leave just the rock beneath behind. However what I have here seems to be a small oval mat of some sort, no larger than a quarter that is a neon green color with small purple/brown bumps on it. The mat turns bright green with just my actinic lights on so ive uploaded pictures with my 10k t5s along with just the actinic. If anyone can help identify this id appreciate it. Again sorry for the book, and I am fairly new to this hobby.
