    This has grown quite rapidly, went from a 1.5 branch frag to what you see know in a couple months, several inches square. I think Roy helped me indeify this one and another like it, but I will post anyway.

    I want to say a pocillipora species, but I'm far from being an expert.

    Possibly Pocillopora damicornis http://www2.aims.gov.au/coralsearch/html/301-400/Species%20pages/307.htm

    One of the pictures looks a lot like your close up.

    Best of luck,

    Roy

    I agree.. we have several pocillopora and this looks alot like all of them. I know what you are saying about it looking similar to a stylo, mostly in the growth pattern, but the polyps scream poci
