    Default Lobophyllia?

    just picked this up from my LFS for $40.00.... It wasn't doing to well under his lighting so I thought i would try and revive it in my tank. Wondering if it is a lobophyllia and what type if anyone knew?

    It required medium to low light and low flow. It accepts meaty foods. It will take couple of weeks but should recover.
