I got these in a live sale and I don’t know if they’re encrusting or the other type (I forgot what it’s called)
One is a teal crush monti -

The other is a purple haze monti -

Here’s what they look like in my tank right now. I just got them yesterday so they’re on the bottom and I’ll slowly work then up in the next couple weeks

The purple haze monti is an encrusting type and will kill everything in its path once it starts covering a rock so best advice is don't place near any Acros or slow growing hard corals.

Sweet, thank you for letting me know, I’ll be careful. How about the other one?
