Some sort of brain maybe, like a favites or favia sp? Can you get a pic when the feeders aren't out? How big is that coral in relative size to others?

The coral is the the size of a large fist. The feeders are about 0.08 inches in diameter. When feeders aren't out they are flat on the surface.

He said the coral is about the size of a fist. That would make some huge porites polyps, wouldn't it?

My first thought was favia as well, but I do agree with Mike, a larger picture would help if you could.
