I got this in a deal my LFS had going on and I couldn't find anything about it. I can try and update the picture tomorrow but the picture I have below is about how big it will usually open right now. Let me know if you have any ideas on what it could be.

Thanks

Really hard to tell with that picture, I'd get it under lower light for now though since it's always a good idea to start new corals off on the sandbed.

Yeah I had him on the sandbed for about a week and slowly worked him up a little higher. I'll try and get a better picture very soon.

Here are some of the updated images...I would like to move him to get a better picture however he seems to be enjoying that spot and has opened up a lot today.

Really hard to tell, could be a small piece of a fox coral or... I dunno. Still hard to tell at that size and angle. I'd ask in the LPS section.

I think organism is correct, fox coral.

I'm going with bubble coral.

I don't think bubble corals are symmetric like that, they're kind of more weirdly shaped imo.

Yep, nemenzophyllia...if I spelled it correctly and it is still a valid name... Haha!

I'm on the fox coral bandwagon.

It looks like a actinodiscus.

Nemenzophyllia turbida for sure. Note the skeletal base, very similar to caulastrea.
