Thanks all and it is for surely a blasto.
I looked up the sellers website and was looking under it and wouldn't you know :) gotta find the right light for this, colors are good. Nice little gift I got with my order.

Thank you all, much appreciated. If anyone has a link/tips for blastos im all ears. Doing my research as I type haha.
Low flow, low light, measurable nutrients, they are super easy.

https://www.fishlore.com/coral/blastomussa-coral.htm here is one maybe a bit obscure but good read

Thanks guys. From what ive been reading it seems "normal reef parameters" and as everyone has said so far, low to moderate light, low flow and from what ive read feed it if you want to grow faster and they are hardy(unless given to much light)
Seems like a fun coral especially with the color combo.
Thanks again

So in my research i found out there are two types of blastos, wellsi and merletti. Wellsi has bigger polyps and merletti has smaller from my research but since i haven't had both im assuming this is a merletti as the polyps seem small... Am I correct?

Merlettis are usually “merlot” colored, I think you have a wellsi.
