    Coral id please...

    Can I please have some help identifying this coral?
    I've looked it up in 'The modern reef aquarium', and Eric's book 'Aquarium corals' and the 'Marine Atlas', and if it's there i've missed it....
    It looks like a pinkn dyed Tubastrea, but the polyps are open during the day and closed at night, I think it needs to be partly shaded and by the size of the mouth I assume it would like brine. What do you think?

    Don't really want to make aguess as to what it is but I'll agree on the feeding thing. What was it sold as ( like that really means anything though..., thinking about your Xenia experience: ).

    I found out that it is a "Duncanopsammia".
    The "whisker coral".
    It's very pretty and looks lovely.
    A friend found it on pg314 of Borneman's book.
    In fact he had such a fantastic Acro tank I though I might put up some pics he gave me on a another post.
