Newbies - help identify coral

We’re just starting a reef tank with softies and there’s one coral we can’t identify. It’s the little guy at the bottom of the picture (seems to be doing well).


Thanks in advance!

Looks like goniopora maybe, really lacking color though. Forget if they're photosythetic or not, but do recall they're not easy to keep

Goniopora have 24 tentacles per polyp. Alveopora has 12. They are photosynthetic, but typically only thrive with spot feeding or regular broadcast feeding.
