Hello. Can anyone help me to identify the specific kind of coral this is, pictured below, the coral in the middle? I purchased it online, and it said it was an orange crush acan. But, this looks nothing like any of the other acans that I have.

Thanks for any help. :)

It does stand out as being different in the middle of your acan garden. Definitely not an acan.

Idk, it could be a monti but I’m also thinking it might be a cyphastrea that has encrusted a coral skeleton. I’m not 100% certain. Maybe a picture under some whites would clear things up.

Thanks. The seller eventually got back to me and said it is a cyphastrea and that they made a mistake and sent the wrong coral. It would have cost double what I initially paid.
