Coral ID

This came in on the zoa we bought about a month ago. We noticed it right away, but thought it was some other type of soft coral that was attached to the plug? Anyway, it is pinkish in color and has grown some since we bought it. Any idea what it is? Also, is there a specific name for the zoa we bought? Thanks!

Well, what isn't considered a nuissance by some ;) GSP, Xenia, some gorgonians, zoanthids, anemones, mushrooms, many soft corals, Pocillopora etc. So it's all a question of perspective.

It's easy to remove if it grows too much for you and you won't have 100's popping out of the rockwork over night.
