I think OP said these 2 move...sponges don't move unless its growing to reach somewhere and cabbage corals usually stay in the same place.

OP do you have gloves you could use to pick it up and take a closer pic of the underside and to see how thin they are?
These don’t move. Someone asked but I replied no. Will get pics of underside today.

That is not a leather coral!

I did ask him if it moved, he said no. The texture of the photos he posted shows the same texture of a cabbage coral. But, if its not glued to a rock he can flip it over and take some pics of the under side.

The pics really don't look like flatworms. They have polyps at the edges. His corals just are growing flat. They have a similar texture to many cabbage. I pulled this pic from another post. Look at the white grain lines and edges of his photo. VS the flat worm with a smooth edge.
And now after browsing many photos of cabbage corals. I now want one.... But they are so toxic.

Now if there are any new searches that say that, I will gladly go get some. But, I keep reading and seeing "Sarcophyton produce and release toxins such as terpenoids."
Edit: and, Sinularia coral is known to be the most toxic of the leather coral species.

It won’t load. But I did find out this is a Cabbage Leather Coral. Thank you for the help.
