Making Dead Coral Look Alive

Hi,
I was wondering if there is anything that will make this nice coral skeleton (it's live rock)

I have already been suggested a type of sea sponge that is in my tank but I was wondering if there is anything that is fairly fast growing and would look like the coral when it was alive?

Also, does anyone know what type of coral it was??

Thanks,
Ethan

Ok, thanks I'll look into the brain. However it needs to stay small as the tank is a Pico

Oh how about zoanthids?
Possibly, I may try to frag mine but I'm not sure if I'm brave enough

Make sure to take it out though and wear some protection.

Yes, just rented a hazmat suit .

It's hard finding some nice zoas on a £10 budget, I saw some nice ones in the Maidenhead aquatics near me, but they had fallen down past the black mesh stuff, it was a one head frag and the guy asked £20, I guess he couldn't be bothered to get it .

Already tried eBay and shpock, with eBay I see some really nice ones at £5 for example with £11.99 shipping .

Will check Gumtree.
I might check under the mats at wow as they price coral properly.
