I know it's hard to see. A coral that came with our tank upon purchase and was thought to be dead but I still hung on to it just in case. It has shifted a little today. I dusted a little food over it to see if I could get it to stand up and in a sense it did. Just wanted a name for it.

The orange circle is part of it that has wilted over.

I'm new to this myself, but maybe a hammer coral? Just judging by appareancr. Someone with more knowledge could probably tell you better.

@OP yours looks like a toadstool or leather that hasn't opened up.

Flsealife yours looks like a blastomedussa (blasto).

I agree with Aresangel. Most likely some type of leather. It will likely shed its skin as it recovers and should be easier to identify later. With the fold in the red circle, it almost makes me think cabbage leather as I have had some look like that near death but may be toadstool or other.

Here is a better image of it. It seems to have grown a bit and developed those pods when the light is on. But I still haven't been able to name what it is or if it needs any special care, food, etc.

Yeah, toadstool for OP. The other poster might be some sort of acan.
