Picked this up from a fellow reefer that was shutting down his tank and gave me his corals and fish so they would have a good home. This had nearly no color at all when I got it but it's stating to get a nice light blue to the eyes. Not sure if the ridges are going to color up more or not, I've had it a few weeks and they haven't really changed much.

Here's the one I got. It's got lime green ridges and light blue eyes. I love it. LONG SWEEPER TENTICLES though. and it actually grows pretty fast. its grown around the frag plug now.

not sure what its called though lol

Probably a Platygyra. Keep it far away from other corals. I had one kill a dinnerplate sized watermelon chalice overnight from almost a foot away.

Thanks guys, I had opened anther thread elsewhere and Platygyra was the general consensus there too. I learned a long time ago to keep LPS separate and downstream of other corals. :D
