Thank you for asking this as I was asking myself the same question. When I purchased this guy from the LFS this is what they told me it was. But upon closer examination you may be right. Ive got this guy in the wrong place if it is a Cyphastrea as right now he is high in the tank with the SPS colonies. Unless I am mistaken they prefer low light? Thanks! PS. I will upload some new pictures of both. Give a little bit.
