If you are talking about the green stuff in the middle it looks like Hydnophora sp. to me.

Green metallic Hydnophora.

Those guys have potent stings...so watch out for nearby corals..that could get hurt.

Yeah The green one is Hynopora Rigida. It does have a very potent sting, luckily the sweepers are only about a 1/2 inch or so long. Its a very easy to care for coral and will grow fairly fast for "hard" corals. The skin covering it is very thin and very delicate and easily damaged. It is very easy to prompagate by breaking off branches and glueing to rocks. Looks very bright green under heavy actinic lighting.

Hey Min, that looks to me like hydnopora spp. also.

It can and will sting but atleast it's sweepers aren't as bad as some species.
