    My fiance's reef coral ID

    My fiance's reef tank has some type of coral. Not sure what kind. If anyone knows could they tell me. Heres a picture. Plus. Not sure if any of you notice. There is a brown speck suddenly on the polyp near the mouth. Any ideas?

    I chose the purple rock. I believe its called fiji. Dry live. The kit is the ATI saltwater test kit. I was advised the ATI kit sucks when asking the LFS manager. He recommended the red sea tester but i dont need it just yet. I plan on getting one though. It looks like a kaleidoscope

    November 15th Picked up Biocube 16 from layaway. Bought instant ocean and made saltwater using tap water. 😡 paid for that mistake Tank began cycle after adding frozen shrimp to let rot.. 2-3 weeks of impatience led to hermit crabs being introduced. RIP hermit crabs. Early December. Frustration built and corals began being bought along with clownfish. Late December. Bad diatoms or Dinos(wasnt sure which) took over tank. Unsightly. Finally figured out LED timing settings. Water temp was 78°. Read way too many different opinions from other reefers and mixed a collection of differant chemicals as a hopeful cure all. Took sample of water to LFS to have it sampled. Very knowledgable manager said tank was established. Read somewhere(of course) that hydrogen peroxide can kill bad algae...if measured properly. Didnt understand the extremely confusing dosages and overdosed my tank. Killed bad algae...and everything else except the corals miraculously. Fiance's tank is keeping the corals alive and healthy. Early January. Nearly gave up. But decided to remove water, sand, rock, filter, biomedia and bought all new of everything. January 4th Put new items into tank and let it run. Have put zero chemicals in tank but live sand has alot of bacteria as said on bag. Now that i have basically reset the whole thing i would like to ask what yall would advise my next move. I wanna figure this out and learn the hobby.
