does it look like it is incrusting on a rock or growing its own skeletal structure. if it is growing its own skeletal structure i woud say it is some type of favia brain whereas if it looks like it is incrusting on live rock i would say some sort of montipora

terry how big is it totally? i had a favite once only it had lime green centers that had 1/4" centers but at night after light out i could take a flashlight adn see it polyped out filter feeding. do you feed phytoplex and zooplex? do you use any trace elements (essential elements coral-vite, etc). if not you might try using some essential elements, coral-vite, coral accel, for growth (i use it when i have sick corals to help stimulate growth and hopefully get teh coral to recover faster, this has wrked for me on a few occasions), phytoplex, zooplex, and make sure to keep your calcium at 420 to 460. another thing i need to ask is where you do have that located and under what lighting? if you are under T5HO try putting it mid level in tank, and with moderate waterflow over it. mine did very well until my coral banded shrimp found it cauing it to die off rather quick which is why my cbs is now in the fuge.

ok try usign some coral vite and essential elements. also for growth try coral accel (kent marine i belive same as coral-vite) and also use some zooplex (zooplankton from kent marine, or you can also use or substitue marine snow). last thing is after lights out (due to fish getting it all instead of the coral) try giving it some frozen mysis.
