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

I also got a chunk of Hollywood Stunner Chalice at the same store. But they look pretty different.

Can anyone help me figure out what I got here so I can give it the right amount of light?!!!

Don't think it a monti those polyps look too big. Not sure what it is though. Maybe something in cyphastrea family
