Don't throw it out. Rinse it out in PWC water to get the "fungus" off of it. Dip it in a FW coral dip like coral clean or the like.

Mike,
Some of the Favia species are sometimes referred to as "golfball" corals. (Although I'm not seeing any in that picture.)

In between the mushrooms, The coral with a bit of green on it and it covered by white. You cant see it because its covered in the white stuff.

That looks like either a hammer or frogspawn could be an elegance too.

That's what I was seeing too, thincat... I was seeing a frogspawn.

Either way, looks like an aggressive sponge.
