It is Heliofungia sp. Another name is long-tentacle plate coral. You should feed it every couple weeks to keep it healthy. Fungias will move around the sand, and yes they do sting.

They are LPS, BTW.

Thanks!
I will try and keep it away from his buddies!
It is so funny to watch him get so big! I feed him a silver side 2-3 times a week.
