Coral Issues...

Hey everyone. I was doing a water change and knocked over a rock on accident. When picking it back up I noticed this coral growing. I have no idea what it is....



Also I got this free from a friend and it was doing fine for a long time and now it's got white spots all over it. Bleaching?

Depends. I have one in my 90 gal that is the same color as Romeo's. Has been doing great for almost 3 years. Have an "Acid Green Pectinia" in my 180 gal that almost died but is slowly coming back. Either way, I have found that moderate flow and light seems to be what they like.

I fragged it off the rock and is now low in the rocks under a mild blowing mp10 and lower light. You guys sure that's what this is?
