Mystery Coral

Ok i went to the LFS today and the guy gave me a coral. It has a dome shaped hard base with plump round purple polyps with a little white tip in the center. Any ideas as to what it may be?

Or maybe this?

It kinda looks like the first one only the polyps are rounded outward instead of inward if that makes any sense LOL
