    So I bought this coral a few years ago. I bought it as a lobo for $5! When I bought it, it was about the size of a quarter. For the first year it always had it feeding tentacles completely open so I still thought it was a lobo that was always hungry. After it started growing it didn't really look like a lobo anymore and I thought I had landed a great deal on a scoly. Now that it has even bigger, it doesn't look like a scoly either. So maybe its a meat coral? What do you guys think? I appreciate the input. IMG_0353.JPG

    +1. Most likely lobo, but could possibly be a meat. Never seen a meat that looks quite like that, though.

    Kinda looks like an acanthophyllia..... that mouth structure dreams acanthophyllia to me

    Might have to wait this one out and see if it grows additional mouths or starts to deform it's shape from a nice circle to something more lobe-y

    Gorgeous piece!
