I got this pagoda cup coral frag a few weeks ago and it seems happy as polyps are extended.

I just noticed a white spot on it in upper right corner.

What could this be and Should I be concerned about it?

Sorry about the crappy picture. I'll try to get some better photos later. The lfs said it was a pagoda cup coral.

What kind of coral do you think it is?

Thanks!

Looks like zoa but your pics are not helpful due to the heavy blue lighting. Get this frag out of the sand which could be irritating it . Please take pics under white lighting.

I have seen other pagoda cup coral frags look similar but now I'm concerned that it might be a zoa from other peoples comments. Anyone else care to weigh in their thoughts?
