Difficult to tell whether it has a skeleton or not from the pic. Goniopora would be my guess...

Ja - goni's are some of the corals that should be on the "no-no" list! I have not heard of anyone's goniporia's (except perhaps Alan's) that has survived longer than a year in our tanks.

BTW: this looks like a goniporia too - it could possibly be a pipe-organ coral, but don't think so.

BTW: Goniporia corals belong to the LPS family.

It sure looks like there's a piece of skeleton coming through, RIGHT at the centre of the pic. Right at the spot where the light is shining on.... So, I think our guesses at goniporia is correct.
