    I know iv seen it before but i cant remember the name for the life of me.

    Very nice SPS but can;t think of its name along with the LPS. You are right on the LPS being very aggressive though.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Yes Hydnophora branchng/horn, and very aggressive. The Acropora needs to grow out, you can not see any corallite structures, growth pattern or true coloration.

    I have read of hydrophoras being so aggressive that sometimes a reefer will keep one on a frag plug to move around and place next to aiptasia as its sting is strong enough to kill the aiptasia. The same is said of the elegance coral.

    I have not tested this but I do have an elegance coral and have never seen an aiptasia pop up any where near it!!
