    lettuce coral?

    I am thinking that the coral in the photo at the following link is a lettuce coral. It came in a purchace of lr rubble I made recently.

    Can anyone offer me some advice on trying to care for it, can it even be kept? I am only set up for easy softies as this point, I still have a long way to go in the SW hobby.

    it has a thin fuzzy biege polyp that kind of looks like a very tiny slinky laying on its side. The rock is about 3"-4" wide with polyps on the underside aswell. I can see one section where it is damaged and some of the "meat" is torn away from the rock.

    The only thing I saw on the net that looks like it, is a pic of the coral skeleton on reefs.org someone was calling a lettuce coral. Short of that I have no idea what it could be. Like I said it just came in a bucket of cured LR rubble.
