    Hello all,
    I am Daytona and went to the only salt water store I could find. Not very impressed, SOM blows it away. Mostly softies. Good prices on fish though.
    But anyway they only had one Acro colony I was interested in but I can't identify it. Anyone have any ideas:

    Weird looking coral...the only thing that it reminds me of is this coral from Atlantis.  It's called a Mirabilis.

    Looks like the growth pattern of a Hydnophora Rigida. Looks to me that it has browned out, possibly due to lack of light/insufficient water parameters.
    My guess is it will turn back to a bright green given the correct care is provided.

    I agree with the hydnopora ID.
