Bullseye, Candy or Trumpet Coral: Normally medium to large polyps with normally a greenish center. Also normally has distinctive flower-shaped lines on the outside of polyp. Sometimes confused with the corals Favia spp. or Blastomussa. Hope this info helps :)

The most common name I've seen this to be called is Candy Cane (not the same as a Candy Coral I don't believe). Mine has doubled in size in a year by keeping it in medium/high flow and under the metal halides.
