That appears to be a scroll coral or a not happy mushroom coral.

It's a perfect circle. Are scrolls typically closed circles? If a mushroom what could it be. It's a hard skeleton

It is not, it's a scroll for sure. The polyp openings are way to big. Definitely not a monti cap like what you posted which has tiny polyps.

Definitely a Pagoda Cup. I had a small one that eventually got to the size of a large Dinner plate.
