Yep, Organ Pipe Coral.

In a freshwater tank, it will dissolve and raise the hardness & pH.

No coral can be kept in a freshwater setup.

OK I am slightily confused. are you asking if dead coral can be added to freshwater setups? because in some cases such as most cichlids it is fine. but if your asking if there is a type of coral that will "LIVE" in a freshwater set up I have one thing to say "NOPE" live coral is strickly for saltwater but a planted freshwater is always nice.
