Yeah I can see that now. I did not recognize it with the tenacles retracted. I almost bought one early on, but the LFS
employee did something uncomon and advised against knowing I was new to corals. Not to say you cannot be successful, but is it possible to return to LFS
Since you are making the dive into corals I highly suggest you pick up a couple of books for IDing them. The one I find most helpful is Julian Sprungs "Corals" Not much narative on each coral, but tons of pictures with an easy to read guide on lightin, aggressiveness, feeding and placement.
Check out the book list on this site for some ideas as well:
This link is also good for identification and some basic info.:
Take a look at my info. All the corals I currently have would be considered easy to moderate care and good for beginners.
Do not give up, I am disappointed the LFS
would sell this to you as a first coral.
