    Need ID on this. Whole size of rock is not even 2 cm. One polyp is probably 1 mm in diameter. Photo of skeleton structure and when polyps are open.

    Not really sure, but looks like it may be an alveopora?

    My thought too. Maybe just very small still.

    Count the tentacles on each polyp. 12 means it's Alveopora, 24 then it's Goniopora.
