Any idea what this might be? Feels kind of like cartilage.... Firm bit flexible. Doesn't retract with touch or movement.

So found out on a Facebook group it's Padina.... Also known as Scroll Algae. Not much info on it, but seems to be wanted in aquariums ‍♂️
You can frag that off of the coral and place it on a different frag if you want too. Or set it in a low flow place to allow it to settle on to a rock. Otherwise they will compete for space. The scroll algae will shadow the coral starving it from light.

Yea am thinking to put it in my refugium.... Apparently its normally found in the shallows where they get strong lighting which makes it probably ideal for the fuge
