    Green Hydnophora is my guess.

    Yes. Research it. Pretty and fast grower, but nasty coral for it's neighbors. Many have banned them from their tanks forever as time goes on.

    Ya I would get it away from the other corals on the rack. it is very aggressive, and it will kill anything that gets within its reach

    Not very long ones, but if it senses a coral near it, it will exude its mesenterial filaments with powerful digestive enzymes and kills back a large portion of the neighboring coral. It will literally try to eat and digest any coral it can get its filaments on
