Coral ID please

I can't remember where this coral came from, or what it is...I just kind of forgot about it and it's been in my tank for about a year. I switched lighting and not sure what it requires. It's sort of a yellow/amber color mostly. It will open and close periodically.

Protopalythoa sp., also know as button polyps. If they are very large, it might be Protopalythoa grandis, or cinnamon polyps but it doesn't look like it from the pic.

The polyps are about 1 centimeter across at the largest. They don't seem to have the same structure as Protopalythoa. No flowery fringe around the polyp.
