Bilateral colored bubble coral

Anyone ever see a bubble coral like this? Same colony just split in color right down the middle

Is that a single polyp? It looks like it has at least two separate mouths.

If not it might be a naturally occurring fusion, like we see often in fungai corals.

I was thinking something similar. Looks like a purple and green grew close together and fused. Nice piece.
