    Looks like a coral from the flowerpot family, I see individual polyps at the edges.
    Corals in this Family unfortunately have not done well in aquariums, 6-12 months and they slowly recede.

    Yup, trouble starts more like 8-12 months, but only if it's a flowerpot, and many people claim to have them for many years.
    The ones I had seemed not to feed well, no real feed response, did great at the start, but just could not find the right food and size, but I suspect real small foods like phyto and Rotifers.

    It is not a Goniopora or a alveopora but I believe this is a Goniopora.
