Google leptastrea. Doesn't seem exactly like it but its hard to tell from the pics. The color just looks wrong to me but check it out anyway.

Ooh la la I think you may have nailed it! I just took some pictures of the other two so I may as well post them. Here is the one that has recovered the least...



And this one is recovering just a wee bit slower than the first one I posted...



And as a bonus here is another hitchhiker coral I got. Looks a lot like a sun coral...



I couldn't fine a website that said where Leptastrea comes from. If it grows in the gulf I'm pretty sure that's what it is.Thanks for the help guys!

The polyps are too small. Looks more like a blasto. Your other new coral is a trumpet coral, not a sun. That's a good thing because trumpets are at least photosynthetic. What kind of lighting do you have?

Hmm from the pictures i quickly looked at the blasto polyps looked bigger than these. It might be impossible to id until it grows out more i guess. The other coral isnt a trumpet, or at least not what i bought as a trumpet. The trumped skeletons ive seen have more rigid skeletons, where this one is smoother and doesny seem to branch the same way.

Look under Caribbean or SE corals. If the rock is from the gulf you will see it.
