what type of coral is that? I love how it looks like it has glitter on it.

I think it's Mycedium. The "glitter" is the zooxanthelle reflecting the light I think

I doubt it's the zooxanthellae, maybe a sort of protein pigmentation.

I recommend sending the coral to me, otherwise the coral might cause untold evil to you and your tank.

I asked this question to Eric Borneman, he replied with:
I can't verify this, of course, but most of the white speckling on cnidarians - common on Aiptasia - and found in faviids and zoanthids as well - are bacteria. Not to worry - normal bacteria that are symbiotic.

I will not be sending this coral to anyone unless of course they can prove that they can perform a certified exorcism. I will not be responsible for putting others in harms way. Thank you all for your concern. Wish me luck and say your prayer for now I am on a quest to battle the evil eye. Just waiting for Froto to call me back, that guys the worst he never returns tex of calls, damn unreliable hobbits.
