    Hard to tell for sure with that pic but it looks like Hydnophora to me.

    I don't think it is hydnophora i have the encrusting hydnophora also known as horn coral and have seen the other kind to. This is a non-agressive sps with long sweeper tentacles that only come out at night. I'll try to get a pic of the tentacles tonight.

    Not that I disagree Bill, but there are many different types of blasto and hundreds of types of Favia. I am not going for blasto but favia is a definite maybe. Non-aggressive with night testicles would support this.
    Does it have a thick fleshy body or is it thin fleshy or is it pretty hard?
    I am still not convinced it is not a type of Hydronophora.
