    I got this as a gift from someone. Its about 8" long and the depth on it is about 4-5". This thing is a monster but what I was wondering is, how much of the bubbles are suppose to come out? Its only been in the tank for 2 days and all the bubbles come out but it doesnt look like their inflated to their fullest. By the size of this thing I would of thought it would of inflated alot bigger then what it is now. Just trying to get an outlook on my new coral. Im not for sure its a bubble coral but it would be my best guess. Hopefully it will open up more. Heres some pics [​IMG]

    I agree with Freak. There are two types of bubble corals, one has much larger bubbles than the other. Yours just looks like the smaller kind (pearl).
