    Looks like it might be a Turbinaria or possibly one of the chalice species.

    For either coral under your lights I would move to the lower levels especially since yours looks bleached.

    better pics

    first picture was taken with the ipad and i feel it doesnt give an accurate representation of the actual color tan of the coral.

    i moved a bit lower but it is still at mid level in my tank. at peak intensity my leds run at 100% 14k setting for about 1h, 1h and a half and they are mounted 30 cm above the water surface.

    here are some better pics that will hopefully be of use to accurately ascertain the species and health.
    as always thx for the help

    Turbinaria/aka Yellow Scroll.

    Under less intense lighting brown/ acclimated to intense lighting bright yellow.

    Yup, definitely agree with this ID aided by the more recent picture.
