Mother nature never ceases to amaze. How about a branching staghorn/echinata-like coral that has distinct blue coralites that resemble the suckers on the arms of octopus. Corallites on the staghorn-like branches have rounded blunt ends that can appear similar to octopus suckers. These blunt ends develop a brilliant medium blue pigmentation. The main branch stem is cream colored with some florescent green color.
