Got this yesterday and not really sure if this is a basically a Red/Metallic Green brain or something else. It's amazing how much it expanded in one day.

It's a sweet looking specimen, to be sure. My guess it's Trachyphyllia geoffroyi. One common name is Wellsophyllia, another is Open Brain.

Great piece, very hardy, not aggressive, forgiving on water flow and lighting. Found fairly deep down, on the sand usually.

Very nice :) Betcha it puffs up huge!

I'm with Jenn on this one, my guess was also Trachyphyllia (Wellsophyllia). They've got some nice ones there at Cap. Bay. I've had my eye on one for a while, but I've recently added a number of things to my tank, and I'm trying to force myself to slow down. ;)
