what is the name of this coral?, the guy at petco didnt know and had to write it up as something else. i have one in my tank and it has been shriveled up for like 6 hours now. i just got him 2 days ago, is this normal? When i first got him he would open up and was beautiful, but i moved a few things around the tank and handled the coral underwater for a while trying to figure out where it looked best. is it bad to handle corals for like 10 minutes at a time?

It looks kind of like a Duncan coral. (LPS)

+3 duncan, provide good lighting and parameters and it should do fine.

P.S it is an lps/hard coral, not a softie.
