                Awesome yellow piece.

                I think this is not the same specie? Alex can verify?

                  I expect this is the “classical” Seriatopora hystrix. There is a similar looking coral, Seriatopora dendritica, which has much thinner branches:

                  In the first picture of the link you can see both species together. The hystrix is placed on the right side.
