Go back to your spotting page for it and there is an "edit" button near the top. You can change anything you wrote. Non- processed sponges are a little stiff- feeling. A piece of acrophora coral found on the beach would just be coral skeleton - there wouldn't be much "soft" material there. Had to put on the Marine bio teacher hat there ;)
