Was picking up some new fish and someone had just traded in a few nice chunky pieces of what was sold to me as "Bright Green Montipora"
It was in the assorted frags bin for $24
Got about a 3" piece out of it.

Just wondering what kind of Monti it is, I haven't seen any quite like it. It's a blue/turqouise base with neon green polyps.

That's because it's not a Monti, it's a Chalice.

That's originally what I thought too when I was browsing the frag selection.
I also bought a chunk of Hollywood Stunner Chalice at the same time. This Green Frag is waaay thicker than the chalice I got.

If it is indeed a chalice though I may have to move it down from the high light location I put it in thinking it was a Monti!

Looks like cyphastrea to my eyes
