    ok now i have had this live rock for about two weeks in the tank and today i noticed
    small polyps on a rock that was a light shade of pink, now i have looked everywhere on the net and the closest id i get is a encrusting porites.

    The polyps all retract into the pink flesh, and are all individaul.
    The flesh/skin feels like a fine sandpaper.

    The pic is bad i know i suck but hey its the best i can do with my mik and druk,
    the small bubble like dots on the pic are the polyps.

    I think its a heliopora from the not so great pic. Also called a blue coral, as it has a blue skeleton. Its a 'soft' coral, but has a hard skeleton like SPS.
