Looks like a Trachaphyllia radiata open brain coral to me. I believe they used to be called Wellslophyllia's.

Actually, both of us should be ashamed, you probably know what the coral is, and hence the title want to know what's wrong with it.

Please post details about your system:
lighting
tank size
water parameters
equipment

Any dwarf angels in the tank? How long have you had the coral?

Edit - forgot to ask - calcium, alk, pH?

Ahh..we werent being smart-@sses....we were simply not paying attention to the real question. Most (99%) of the people on this board sincerely want to help...its rare that you will get a smart-@ss comment unless its clearly a joke.

As far as whats wrong....its got a pretty thick slime coat as you can see, but I have no idea why. Your parameters look good. ReefLady is probably on track...anything irritating it?

How did you acclimate the coral to the tank?
