Hi, please help to identify that coral, left on the picture -green.
I thought that is montupore, but it's killed another Monti Superman. You can see on the picture how this assassin works.

Just care about my across and another sps which it's can kill.

Thank you.

its a green cyphastrea i believe.
need a better pic to tell, need to see the actual size of each polyp and if it appears to have a volcano skeleton under each polyp.

Thanks guys.
I Google it and it's definitely Hydnophora.
So, I've decide to take it off from the rocks.
