    what is this called and what exactly do you think it will look like if it does grown anything out of it or turn color or what? Thanks!

    Yep pretty dead coral. But it will be reborn into what we affectionately refer to in the hobby as live rock.

    Well I kinda already know that is a dead and is some kind of coral but can any of you give me a name of what kind or family it belongs to? Instead of stating the obvious lol

    Just testing the waters. :D

    If I had to guess I'd say some type of stylophora.

    That's what I was thinking...looking it up, stylophora was the closet coral I could match it to....in the high nitrite stage of my FOWLR tank and this dead coral was given to me and we wanted to add just 2 or 3 corals to the 75g FOWLR we have. but not quite ready for all that just yet...just getting my first saltwater tank up and going but in time would be nice...we also have a tall 70 gallon we were going to make a seahorse tank...any advice on the corals in with the FOWLR tank or advice on the 70g seahorse tank?
