    Default My so called "lobo"

    Was taking some pics of the tank tonight, and got a couple nice ones of this guy. Then I realized I hadn't updated the original I.D./best placement thread I started over a year ago. So UPDATES !!!!!

    However I'm on the fence about it being a lobo ????? I've had this piece a little over a year now, and you can see just how much its healed and colored up since I first purchased it, it'll eat just about anything that drops on it as well. Anyone want to help I.D. this coral ?

    So what do guys and gals think this is, or will I just have to wait till it gets bigger?

    Enjoy the pics

    Maybe a Acanthophyllia deshayesiana aka Doughnut Coral or Meat coral? (Sometimes mis-labeled Cynarina deshayesiana)

    I have the same coral and have always been under the impression is that it was a meat coral. I know it loves meat. Lol We actually feed it squid and krill.

    Yea, I have to agree with you both. Just got done looking over meat coral pics on google, and it's a dead on match.
    Mine loves to eat as well, it'll eat anything. It loves the chunks of shrimp in rods food.
