Coral Identification

Ok here is something that has been getting my curiosity lately... And i have been seeing it getting larger and larger and figure its about time that I figure out what it is.. Also since we are at it.. I bought this elegance today and it seems to differ from the others I have seen and I wanted to make sure that it is indeed an Elegance..

Here are my best guesses.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Agreed Catalaphyllia jardinei = Elegance coral.

These are common hitchikers on carribean rock, non-photosynthetic and pack a powerful sting.
