Default ID on Xenia

Can anyone ID this xenia? I bought it from a local e-bay vendor who moved and does'nt seem to be selling anymore.

It is pink, encrusting and pulses in a corkscrew motion (it twists as it pulses).

I am desperate to find some, but always come up at a dead end.

I lost it twice and it came back from a pinhead sized scrap, but the move killed it off completly.

I know it's only Xenia, but for some reason I just love this coral.

Not Pom Pom, that grows in stalks, drops babies and does'nt corkscrew. This is entirely different, it encrusts, has the corkscrew pulse and does'nt have stalks.

For all i know this is'nt even a Xenia, that is what it was sold as though.

It died in the move, that's why I'm tryimg to find out what exactly it is. With the growth rate of it, had I not encountered any setbacks, I probably could have filled 3 of my tanks with it by now.

Sulfer, got any pics? Any chance of you selling a frag of it?

From that pic, it does not look like what I'm looking for although I do appreciate the offer.

I have a pink xenia, but it does not corkscrew. It is probably one of my top three Corals. I also have a NICE blue xenia, that does not pulse like the other one, but looks more like the one you posted a pic of, just not the same color...so, I have one that looks like yours but is the wrong color, or one that does not look like yours, but is the right color Pics were taken, just need to try to download them....
