Hey guys

Can someone kindly identify this coral. I think it’s the reason my 2 platinum clowns are missing. There’s no trace of them in the tank. They were quite small. Could it possibly have eaten it?

Hard to tell from this picture. But there is a large mushroom that does eat fish. They draw up at night and will suffocate the fish.
Now fish can die in a reef tank and get lost in the rear of the tanks. An they can disappear due copepods and micro fauna.

Looks like it could be an elegance coral. It will eat fish.
