Is That A Lobo? Trach? I'm no expert but i'm inclined to say it is one of those.

It’s a Caulastrea, which goes by a number of names, including those above.

I believe so. I've seen all caulastrea labelled as candy cane or trumpets, but there are sub-species (furcata or curvata). But I'm not 100% positive on this. This is one of the problems with using common names
