Name of this coral?

Hi there!
I have just begun my research on setting up a saltwater tank. I have come across this amazing design and am really curious about what these corals are called (I still have a lot of learning to do on corals so bear with me )
Thanks for anyone who helps!

I belive its just aquarium decor, made to look like mushrooms and leather corals. They could be bought at most local pet stores. Most of the tanks on the same slideshow are Fish Only or FOWLR's, so I assume they are in fact just plastic replicas of these corals...

Thanks for your replies!

Oh what a pity, too good to be true then I guess. But having those fish without any real coral is not so ideal now is it? Would it be possible to do fake decor and live coral?

that tank has to be a joke. it would not suprise me if the company stocked it for a "pretty picture"
theres over 10 damsels in there and these IMO are one of the most aggressive. the corals are fake as half the fish in the tank arnt reef safe anyways. im just thinking out loud here.

as for the coral question you can very well get that coral. its a montipora or monti cap, which is a SPS. if you want to do live coral and decorations its your tank, just be careful its aquarium safe and its not collecting detritus. i personally am a fan of a natural looking tank.
