It appears to be an algea of sorts and a friend of mine had some in her tank thats looked an awfull lot like what you have. I seem to remember hers growing very good when her tank had problems as in higher levels of trates, phosphates and nutrients. I also know when she got her tank under control it stopped growing and slowly shrunk to nothing oh does it have like a single stem attached to the rock. I know she gave a friend a chunk of it that she trimmed of and he put it in his tank and his tangs when crazy over it and devoured it.

yah i mean it does look cool, however it also means that your parameters are off and you may be sacrificing the lives of fish and other inhabitants. i think that blue ring octopus look cool also but i wouldnt keep one if you paid me to.
