    Possibly that but hard to tell by the pic. Could also possibly be a Favia or Favites.

    Can you get a pic of the connective tissue in between the polyps?

    Not an Acan from what I can see so far. It's gonna be either a Favia or Favites.

    I'm with @Ibn, I'm leaning towards Favia or Favites. Love the coloration! I'd like a DBTC frag someday ;)
