Clavularia sp. N. Sulawesi

Clavularia sp. Red Sea.
Genus Clavularia (et al. Clavulariids): Individual polyps are encased in calyces (sing., calyx) of half to two inches in length. Tentacle enclosed by feathery pinnules, often side-branched. Occur in pinks, blues, white to cream, brown to yellow colors, at times with contrasting centers. Unlike pulsing soft corals (Family Xeniidae), Clavulariids can withdraw their tentacles completely. 
Acabaria splendens, Splendid Knotted Fan Coral. Deeper water species that is planktivorous. Gorgeous close-ups showing the flexible "knots" at the anastomoses of a colony. Red Sea pic by DiF.
