    Possibly a plating monti of some sort;- Montipora monasteriata, is the only thing i can find that is even close.

    yes i think it might be a Montipora monasteriata[​IMG]

    it does have this type of surface however it has two mouths ( thoughs two humps on the coral in my pic) and seethrough fan shaped things come out of it when its feeding. Does a Montipora monasteriata have this?

    i think you will find they are vermitid snails that have settled inot the coral and are no actually part of it.

    it might irritate the coral a little bit, but as it part of life's rich tapestry and your tank, i suggest you leave it and enjoy the amazing diversity of creatures:)
