It looks like an ORA Bird of Paradise to me. What are the differentiating characteristics of your spawn vs. the BOP?

The main difference between bop, green birdsnest and blue zing is color of polyps. Other then that they are fairly similar. The green birdsnest grows tight branches, bop has a bit longer branches and blue zing is somewhere in between.
Here is a pic with all three in same pic. Bop are in front, easy to overlook

Blue zing is my favorite of the three.
