An unknown SPS

This is a little SPS (encrusting) I found on a piece of LR rubble (yes, same piece of rock as my other post). When I first got the rock it seemed to be just a coral skeleton. No polyps visible at ALL. A few days after I upgraded my NO lights to the PCs lights I noticed polyps! There were only 4 or 5 "circles" and it's in a really tough spot to get a pic so it's hard to see, but it's a couple inches in diameter now, probably 20-30 circles. Any ideas what this is? I'll try ang get a better pic some time but I'd really have to move the rock to do so.

Thanks!

That's what it looks like to me from that angle.

I agree w/ every one else. If you see LONG sweeper tentacles, it's definitly a Galaxea. (LPS)

well I decided to turn the rock and took another snapshot, It's quite retracted from the move, but here it is.

Any care pointers if it is a Galaxea? (and I've never seen any sweepers)

Oh, other shot is the whole rock I found the two corals on.

ROFLMAO.....
I have had a Galaxea for awhile now, not much special care feeding wise just make sure to leave room for those sweepers. They can do a number on other corals. Med-high flow, and med-high light. Nice freebie!
