A cool addition by my brother, but he had no clue about the name.

It looks like a leather to me. Mine looks very similiar. (softie)

It's either leather-related or possibly a corallimorphian. Discosoma neglecta maybe?

Looks like a Pectina to me. Stony Coral.

It is a stony coral with 1-2 small mouths per each "cup".

I will take a better picture right now.

THis one was actually blue/green when my brother bought it. Looks a little fatter today, I will take another pic.

I'd go with some sort of pectinia also.

Any special care requirements anyone can mention?

After looking around I think it has to be Pectinia paeonia. Thanks again.

Pectinia, there is no doubt. Very easy to take care of - give it moderate light and it will get bright green, and get a nice iridescant hue
