Aren't those usually a branching coral?

looks like a candy cane coral that hasn't grown a skeleton around that rock yet you can see some heads starting to grow skeleton up off the rock


could also be some kind of brain coral

Not to hijack, but what is with all the Aptasia's? And I think its a candy cane as well.

Thanks again

Thanks again to all who have took the time to help me out. I have had this coral for about 4 months and it has not changed. I have a few different candy canes and trumpets and I knew it was not one of them. Although I kinda thought it might be in the family. I want to thank AndrewR I think he is the one that found it. " Caulastrea Tumida" http://whelk.aims.gov.au/coralsearch...0pages/113.htm

It is definently a caulastrea species. AKA candy cane, trumpet, call it what you will.
If you want to be amazed about the different growth forms of Caulastreas, visit the Tropicorium. They have at least five or six different growth forms/species, cannot name them all but I know they are there (they have had the mother colonies for a while). You might be able to PM them for some pics if you live far away.
