I've always thought the "War" coral was red with green centers. No exceptions.

It does look like an acan and it certainly eats like one i.e. 24 hours a day. Here's another image of the whole coral with feeder tentacles out.

don't think that's an echinata polyps are too distinct and raised. echinata are usually more fused flesh. Looks more like a favia but could be a micromussa

Since I started this thread I noticed that every single corolite is green in the centre so I think skp nailed it - it looks like a war coral (favites pentagona). Thanks for the help everyone.
