The Kenya Tree Coral, also referred to as a Cauliflower Soft Coral, Nephthea, or Nephthya, is similar to the members of both the Litophytonand Nephthea genera. It lives in a wide range of the Indo-Pacific. It has a thick trunk, like a tree, and many branches giving it an arboreal appearance.
It is not normally considered a threat to hard corals, but may itself be disturbed by their presence. The Kenya Tree Coral relies less on the symbiotic algae within it, and depends more on obtaining outside food. Microplankton, marine snow, and dissolved materials should make up the bulk of its diet.

I put a small glass with some life rock on the bottom in the aquarium and put 2 Kenya Trees in it.

I decided to make a map of which is located where, for tracebility. This one is now known as 1.3, the second from the left on the top shelf, hidden behind the pump.
Here a couple of pictures after cleaning on July 16.
