Ok so,I'll probably feel pretty dumb for not figuring this out on my own but....

Do you think this is a Montipora sp.? The overall form looks like it but the light green "eyes" all over it is different than other pics I've seen of Montipora.

The color is off on the in-tank picture since I'm not smart enough yet to figure out how to compensate for the bluish light.

Or maybe Turbinaria?

Some type of Oxypora or Echinopora, chalice corals are not my strong suit so can't give you exact species but fairly certain it's a type of chalice.

Interesting. Ok, I had breifly considered that it might be a chalice but looked so different from all the high-priced chalice's out there in it's form. Anyway, thanks.

I would say Echinopora lamellosa (Hollywood stunner) like edrosales said is probably accurate.

Well, how about that. Thanks guys, surely wouldn't have ended up there on my own.
