    Looks like a Candy cane (Trumpet) coral. To your other question it sounds like it just a spionid worm. We have a bunch in our reef and they never bother anything. I miss our candy cane coral, they grow pretty and some of our heads took the shape of hearts. Yours is really bright green too, good score.

    Nice score on the coral. It goes by a few name, toxic green candy cane or radioactive candy cane etc...

    The tube could be a vermetid snail... Personally I'd try to get it out of the tank. You can just break the tube.

    Sweet thanks. I won't hurt the coral by doing that ?

    No shouldn't affect the coral at all if you remove it, but vermetid snails send out lines of mucus and "fish" for stuff in the water to eat. That mucus can be pretty bad on the coral.
