Default Japanese neon toadstool or Tyree?

Wondering if anyone could please help me ID this toadstool please. I bought it as a 1Ē frag and it has now grown to approx 7Ē. I initially was told by the vendor it was a rare Japanese neon toadstool but am wondering if perhaps it is instead a Tyree after searching the internet.
Thinking to sell it either whole or maybe in frags as while I love it, I am having trouble keeping clams with it and wonder if the odd SPS has reacted to it as well?
Picture to follow, sorry

My guess is Tyree.

From the pictures I've seen, the Japanese ones have long tentacles.

That picture looks a lot closer to my Tyree.

Thatís what Iíve been thinking, thank you for your input.
Iím looking to move it from my DT as I think it may be responsible for my having a hard time with clams and some sps...

First off. I hate the name game.

Its a nice green polyp toadstool!

If a specific name is going to be put on it, like Tyree, it should be of that exact lineage from him.

That's not to say there aren't "generic" toadstools that will look exactly the same.

I have heard of a long tentacle Japanese toadstool. But again, that's not to say there isn't a short tentacle Japanese toadstool.

FWIW, from the pic it looks very similar to the Tyree toadstools I keep, except mine seems to stay a bit smaller.

I too got a frag of what was sold to me as a Japanese toadstool. When it grew out, it looked identical to my Tyree.

So hope that clears the mud! Lol

Why do you want to remove it? Because you don't like it? Or because you think it might be stressing your other more prized corals?

If you like it, but think it may be causing issues with the other corals... You can try more frequent water changes, running carbon, ozone...etc. softies like that generally pose issues from chemical warfare. So you just need to be able to curb that.

One more thing, I believe there are 2 well known Japanese varieties.

The green long tentacle

And

A green tentacle with green cap as well. (Where as the Tyree is green tentacle, but NO green cap)

I absolutely love it, but kept having issues when Iíd add clams plus every now and then an sps would just up and rtn. And then a few weeks ago I lost most of my sps in a few days... Long story, but after reading up on the possibility of toxins, it seemed to make sense to me. So Iíve moved it to my 80 frag thinking I could add clams and voila! They opened up beautifully) - until I noticed my melanurus literally diving into their openings for a quick nip😬
I do need to up my water changes but itís a tedious process with my current set up, though Iím sure youíre correct in that helping. Never tried ozone so not familiar with that at all.
Hope to keep the leather for my clowns in the 80 now.
