What sort of coral?
This piece of coral(?) is on the side of a 4.5kg Liver rock I got the other day. there are 3 other small bit of coral on this piece LR which I was very happy with @$17 a kg. the coral in the pic is 4inches across, where is another bit that looks like brain coral that has orange in the centres but I can't get a close pic.
So what sort is it called, in the pic?
Its hard to tell. From the pic it looks like it was a tiny coral that died and was covered in coralline algea.
Looks in parts to be candy cane coral
its not dead, its all flesh...maybe lighting makes it look red/pink cause it realy looks green/brown, like Brain coral.
can't seem to get a better pic sorry.
it doesnt look like cndy cane coral, or a brain coral. it might be one of those things where it has to get a little bigger to compare it to something.
Does it look a bit like this? Maybe not as puffy around the edges?
Looks to me like Acanthastrea. Cant be 100% sure without a better pic.
doesn't look like that one, will try for a better pic and also of the other bit on that piece
It's not Caulastrea! Do a google image search on Acanthastrea. Could also be variety of Favia, Try the image search on that as well. I have a large favia. When new heads appear, part of the centers are orange for a few months.
thanks for that, will check those names out, yeah the smaller ones are a nice orange in the centres(3)
