Coral ID

Can someone ID this coral, I purchased it as a small frag in 6 months it grew to the size of a baseball. I had to move it and it tore into 4 pieces. The base is a bright purple and the 8 tentacles are either Brown or green depending on the time of day. There are multiple on each section. It completely retracts at night leaving a purple ball with small bumps. Thanks Mike

Thanks Patrick. I will check it out . I just fraged into. 5 good size pieces, the pedestal is very blue/purple and feels like soft rubber.
Thanks Mike
