Unknown coral

I thought that when we got this that it was some dead coral, but I noticed today that there are polyps sort of long polyps towards the bottom of it. I thought it might be of the favites family but I'm probably wrong, can anyone tell me what it is?

TIA

Ok, time to do some more research thanks Kevin, I take it since I haven't been feeding it that it feeds on what is in the water or the light?

yes, it is photosynthetic and will feed on plankton in the water.
