Been given a free frag but what is it please

Would I be correct in assuming this is a trumpet coral? Anyone know precisely which one/scientific name please. Thanks in advance! Click image for larger version

Looks more like a blasto or an acan. Be easier to ID once it grows and spreads more.

Ok...so that's 1.24".....That may be a Lobophyllia frag. A single head of a branching Lobo.

Ok so finally (after the addition of a splendid mandarin for some reason) the frag has finally opened up with clear tentacles. I've taken the picture under blue led in a dark room so it's really easy to make them out! Are we still looking at a Lobophyllia frag?Click image for larger version

Yes. One that would enjoy a small piece of mysis or other meaty food.
