    This is definitely a stylopora pistillata, of the sps coral species. One that I might guess will color up to a more intense pink coloration. Nice coral.

    Does it feel like a rock or more like rubber. Looks like a Tonga softe to me?

    hehhe. ;D

    As for the coral, I see what you are saying about the Tonga but I am sticking with my hunch with the backing of xabo and Sue_T. Check out Sue's tanks in her sig, I'd say she knows her SPS! :) :eek:
