    Can anyone ID:

    Rock type: Tonga
    Rock cycled: yes three months


    When I got the rock I notice this (small amount) it was white and looked like it was dead. Now all of a sudden its tripled in size and got a color to it (even though its brown)

    Anyone know what this is:

    Oh, damn, I remember seeing this coral in a book somewhere... the name is escaping me, but I recall it was described as one of the "hardiest" stony corals.
