If cup is filling up fast reduce water intake and open air intake microbubbles are part of the "break in' period most if not all skimmers will do this for couple weeks when new

hey guys, long time no update...so i got the 55 fully running, transferred all my fish. bought a few more pieces of coral, but my Photobucket is not letting me load up any new pictures. in the mean time i have a question, i bought this coral a few months ago from my LFS labeled as "sun coral" but i don't think that's accurate. found an old pic. any ideas? i figure its just really bleached but i have no clue.. eats and opens up regularly.TIA guys!

My vote is Palythoa Grandis - giant cinnamon polyps.
