Hey guys,

I am wondering if anyone can help me ID this Mushroom? I purchased it from a local LFS a few months back, just liked it because it was different to anything I had seen.
I had it out on a seperate rock and a week back it let go of its frag plug and must have floated to the main rock in the tank and its made it's home in this spot. (I couldn't believe it when the coral was just gone one morning from the frag plug!)

Anyhow, the coral is a bright orange, verging on red colour (not quite the purple it is showing up here). However it is brighter than my superman rhodactis.
It has a bright lime green mouth.
In terms of texture it also seems like a cross between my Ricordia and the Rhodactis. It is very bubble like, but just doesn't seem convincingly like a Ricordia.

What do you think?

Have you noticed any changes in the color of your coral based on how you feed your tank?
