Coral ID from video, can anyone help?

Post by AquaticEngineer on July 12th 2010, 2:21 am

That is a sponge. It is nearly impossible to narrow it down to particular species though. I love them, but if you do get one never let it touch the air or it will die. Bubbles get trapped in their tissues and clog up everything.

I couldn't tell in the video if it was a sponge or if it was a variety of fire coral.
