Rock or coral

I used to have hermit crabs and this used to be in the tank with them but once I got rid of them I took it out and totally forgot about it till I saw it last night is it a piece of rock or is it dried coral I'm a newbie in salt water

what kind of lighting system do you have? how long has the tank been set up? i buy my coral from two different stores, people also order them online. liveaquaria.com is a good site, they show exact pictures of the coral you are buying

price completely depends on what you get. you can get cheap frags for as low as 5 bucks or some colonies can reach over 300 dollars

That light I'm assuming is a t8 bulb and will not even grow the lowest light corals. You need much better lighting for corals.

Yeah it's a t8 what do you need to grow corals... I was told that I wouldn't be able to keep an anemone with this light but my anemone is very healthy and seems fine
