Can't tell if it's a sponge or possibley a montipora capricornus. Any chance of a pic that's a bit better focused?

Cheers
Steve

M. capricornus does not usually have visible polyp extention through the entire coral. You might see a few here and there but can easily be missed if your not looking carefully.

What kind of lighting? I have a few pieces in my 90 gal under 4x96w PC that do very well, including some digitata and a yellow encrusting monti.

Cheers
Steve
