I've been told that this is an Australian flowerpot, however, I have not been able to find anything to confirm that. The "flowers" are not on stalks but sit closely on the rock. They are super fluorescent and the brightest thing in my tank. Any ideas???

Cool, thanks! I couldn't figure it out as it doesn't have stalks like all the other flowerpots I've seen. Any good advice on how to keep it alive?

I have 2 frags. The one that's doing great is a little above mid level tank placement, medium flow, next to some zoos, it's really taking off. The other is in the opposite side of the tank next to mushrooms and rarely opens. Go figure.

It's some type of goniopora. Alveopora (a close relative and shares the common name 'flower pot coral') has 12 tentacles per polyp, goniopora has 24. Both can be challenging to keep long-term.
