Looks like a Bernardpora. They are often called Micro-Gonis
No, those are not Bernardpora. All of what we call Bernardpora in the hobby are incorrectly identified as such, which can be traced back to Jake Adam's misIDing "Micro Gonis" as Bernardpora. True Bernardpora look like this:

Got it! Thank you for the clarification. What is a "Micro Goni" if not a bernardopora?

some other Goniopora species. I have seen them IDed as G. minor, but comparing their skeleton (from CotW) with the skeleton of a piece that died in my tank, that is not it. I remember Joe Rowlett identified a similar phenotype as G. cf gracilis.
