Coral identity

Is this a monti or an acro...it's so tiny it's still less than an inch big. I've been waiting for it to reach a descent size to see what it is.

It looks like acropora to me. you can see it starting to branch right now, and branching montipora have much closer polyps.

Is the coral thin? If so I would say a Hollywood stunner chalice.

It's definitely not LPS. It's acropora.

Yeah it's been taking forever to grow...it's starting to slowly show signs of encrust meant over the frag plug but that's it...the branches haven't grown or anything

Based on polyp placement and shape I'd say cyphastrea.
