2 New corals today, one brain and one ?

I was so excited I totally forgot what the second one is. I usually write down on the back of their business card but forgot today. Also, what kind of brain is this? I'm buying from a store that uses all the "proper" names, I'm trying to learn but it's alot of information.

Thanks for the help folks!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Agree with Flake. Nice coloration on that trachy, by the way!

Green star polyps grow like crazy got mine a couple weeks ago and It was smaller then Urs and has already taken over the frag plug. Just be prepared to frag a lot bc they will take over and encrust on other corals

Thanks for the help.

The green star has its very own rock for it to grow on, after that I'll get worried. LOL

Looking forward to these things taking hold and growing
