    Alveopora as it looks like it has 12 tentacles. Goniopora has 24

    And not a happy one at that

    My gues as well Marc, an Alveopira..still going to be a prob saving it if I look at the pic . Sceleton looks badly damaged, some cayno on the rock etc. Best bet would be like yo say. ....if someone can help would be cool

    4 weeks will not suffice unfortunately omer, your tank is still cycling etc. GOOD news, if someone in the area can assist would be great.

    You say it just appearead..(weird) maybe the coral curus can assist in telling us why
