Looks like a sinularia (finger leather) to me. Easy to keep.

I think it's a kenya tree coral.

the picture wont get bigger on my computer for some reason. judging from the lack of polyps on the lower portion it looks like a kenya tree coral that is closed up a little. they may also be called nepthea tree coral. when it opens up does the it become kind of bushy and get a brown color in the bushy part. if it is a nepthea i keep mine in high light and pretty high flow. they grow quickly and are easy to frag.

hope this helps a little

Does it look kind of like this? If so, I was told it was a leather finger tree coral.

I agree on the kenya tree (leather) call. Kinda looks new and not yet fully acclimated to its surroundings. Or it may be before the lights are on and its fully awakened for the day.

It is easy to keep IMO. Medium flow and not a whole lot of light required.
