This was sold to me as such. Was told that it's an encrusting coral. Can anyone confirm?

I'm not really sure what that is exactly, (some sort of LPS) but it's not what I would consider a maze coral. I know it's a frag, but it just doesn't have those distinct walls or barriers that I'm used to. Maybe somebody else will chime in.

Yeah, that's why I'm questioning it. I'm happy with it and would love for it to encrust that whole rock. Just want to know exactly what it is in case there are any special needs.

i agree with Cloak it doesnt seem to have all the meanders and walled off polyps of a maze type. i think its some type of favites as it looks like the polyps are common walls with each other . Interesting color pattern though. Be nice to see in about six months

Still looking for a positive ID.

To give an idea of scale, the frag is about 2". Also the turquoise spots are the mouths and sweeper tentacles are about 1/2" long.
