    Looks like a duncan coral.
    Are the heads on different cones on the coral or is it one long piece?

    Definitely a elegant coral.
    Does it stay like this or does it open up larger during the day?
    They are quite hardy & easy to keep if your water parameters are good & in check.

    That is an elegance coral. they normally found on the sandy seafloors in mangrooves. You get purple tip , red tip, orange tip and green tip and then the actual flesh parts normally come in green ! Make sure there no sharp edges that can damage the soft tissue they do not like that!
