Dome coral experience needed. Now with pic

I was at the LFS yesterday looking around minding my own business and checking out corals. They had what they called a green dome coral. It has been there several weeks so I am assuming it is pretty hardy. I think the scientific name is halomitra pileus. I continued browsing and kept looking at it. It is a beautiful coral approx 8" round with 1000's of short tenticles on it that sway in the current. I was assured by the guy there that it was equal in care level to plate corals. He has never told me wrong before so... well I now own it. I have been looking around for info on it but find nothing other than it is rare. I am in the office but will post a pic of it when I get home. Any experience or comments would be appreciated.

You’re right about there not being much info on the web about them. I did find this link:
http://www.bostonreefers.org/forums/...hp?t-9700.html which has some nice photos.

They had something very similar to that at the LFS by my house. Looks like an ultra-short tentacle plate coral.
