Wouldn’t the base be hard like a skeleton? OP said it was soft and reacted to touch.
Not if that “rock” is an old Skelton. There is branching alveopora that creates a skeleton similar to the rock in the pic.

Not saying it is, just stating it is possible.

it is a coral skeleton and the tentacles do resemble alveopora! better yet after picking at it with some forceps the base seems to be skeletal

oh i see now, it was so small i didnt realize before. Cool but i would worry the sympodium may choke the small hammer out before it has time to grow
