Looks like Montipora capitata

You're the type of man who passes by sports illustrated and grabs encyclopedia brittanica when you take a dump, huh?

Did someone mention Alto ???

Is it branching and plating? If it does both then Montipora Spongodes.

Montipora Spongodes looks very similar
this one though doesn't really plate just kind of branches

Then it's probably a capitata. Pretty lucky find, they're fairly rare.

looks like digi to me

Digis don't have coralites indented like that. They're almost always completely smooth
