That looks like a plate coral.
Bit of a tough one: Euphyllia - Torch, Hammer etc. or Heliofungia - Plate

I have seen Heliofungia named platecoral but also Fungia, Cycloseris and Zoopilius.

You tell me which one it is :thumbup:

I'll say it is Fungia, Euphylia is more branching.

Rather wait for someone more experienced to say what it is.

Don't worry - those corals won't "eat" your nemo's - only nemmies could do that - IF the nemo's were sick - then they "lose" their chemical protection - then nemmie feasts..... Corals - no....

Forgot about the chemicals, but that heliofungia has a big "mouth", I reckon if a dead clown (small) lay down there, it just may try eat it
