Hi Paul

Yes it came on the rock

I've never had one before so wasn't sure how it should look

Thanks for your reply

Any tips on keeping this would be appreciated

Is a pretty hardy monti. So keep you parameters in check and it should be fine And it like med- hi lighting and high flow. It will benefit for feeding with a good coral food.

That isn't exactly a "superman coral". That is a more common nickname for a monti, which paul covered.

That on the other hand is a meteor shower coral, a Cyphastrea.

That's referred to as a Meteor Shower Cyphastrea, not Superman coral.

No. It's in the Cyphastrea family.
Cyphastrea agassiz
Cyphastrea chalcidicum
Cyphastrea decadia
Cyphastrea japonica
Cyphastrea microphthalma
Cyphastrea ocellina
and Cyphastrea serailia, which I believe is the one pictured above.
