I have to admit, I never really liked softies, but this little guy was all brown in my wifes tank, but it had a hint of green in it, so I put it in my nano back at the end of september and its really coloured nicely.
What kind of coral is this?

Looks similar to a Kenya Tree.

Tank is looking awesome though! So clean!

If it's green under regular lighting it could be a palau nephthea like the one I have. If it's only green under actinics then maybe a kenya tree as suggested.

Its green under the regular light.
For some reason I'm having trouble getting the white balance right with the camera on this tank....but yeah its always green.

Maybe a green finger leather. I have one that kind of looks like that too. Is it stiffer like a leather coral or more swayey like a kenya tree?
