    Hey,

    I've been working on switch from FOWLR to reef. Once I exclaimed my parameters were good my wife surprised me with two frags from a LFS by her work. I dipped and put in my tank, but dont know what they are... any help is appreciated

    First looks like a war coral (favites pentagona) and second one could be a micromussa lordhowensis but it's hard to tell

    Thanks! I know the pictures aren't the greatest, is there something I can look for on the second to better decipher?

    Your welcome. Give it a day or two, if its micromussa it will puff up quite a bit.

    It was puffed up this morning before I left for work. Should it stay puffed out? If it doesn't, couldn't be getting too much light?

    Thanks for all the help!
