I think that a moonstone (Favia sp) has a blue/lavender morph.

thanks for the suggestion, but it isn't that sort of brain coral, I'll see if I can't get a picture on today.

Possibly, but it looks like Blastomussa wellsi to me....



If you'll look at this pic, you'll see where it is very full it's polyps take on a different look. When disturbed, does it retract into individual polyps or is it one polyp?

if I remember right it is one, and scrolly like a brain, it has the sort of skeleton that a brain/hammer/elegance has.

The pet store didn't know what it was, they got it in as a trade in, all they knew was that it was a brain, buto idea what kind.

I do appreciate you guys trying to help me figure it out.

In that case I'd say it is either a very healthy Lobophyllia or a Symphyllia.
