Any idea? saw these on a lfs thread and saw another somewhere else during the week. Can't really get a good count on the polyp tentacles but think its 10. Was quite clear its not an alveopora and I had madracis in my head?

TIA

This is the tank I first saw this coral in and why I liked it so much. Any ideas?

Its not a goni I'm afraid as they have 24 tentacles on their polyps. Alveoporas have 12 and this has what I believe is 10 at most.

Looking more at it I think your probably right. Its polyps are much finer than any alveopora I've seen before which is what through me off.
