Small yellow polyps any sharing of personal experience is more than welcome
Looks like it might be a Turbinaria or possibly one of the chalice species.
looks like a pagoda, that is not doing very well.
I thought a sort of pagoda as well but apparently they don't come in these colors? Thx for the input regardless any one else want to give it a guess?
If it is Turbinaria (aka Pagoda cup), my guess would be stellulata.
Corals of the World Factsheet and images - Turbinaria stellulata
Maybe an Echinophyllia species (aka chalice). Possibly a bleached out echinoporoides.

A closer pic of the growth edge and polyps would help. And a pic of the skeleton would really help if there is any exposed.
thx frick lights are off but ill take some pics tomorrow, was unaware it was in the redlist. they had in the shop for some time in these conditions, placed relatively high in the aquarium under t5s. its under leds now mid level. any personal experience with them?
For either coral under your lights I would move to the lower levels especially since yours looks bleached.
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.
