The first photo posted is, without a doubt, NOT A. maxima. Im not sure its even Acanthastrea (though its likely some kind of Mussid).

From the Australian Institute of Marine Science:

Quote:
Colonies are cerioid with corallites up to 50 millimetres diameter. Septa are coarsely toothed. Polyps have a fleshy mantle up to 100 millimetres diameter and with a Lobophyllia–like texture... The fleshy mantles are more extensive than those of any other Acanthastrea.


No part of the description matches the coral shown above- sorry...

I guess the pic is deceiving?

Based on the frag plug in the front of the pic, the polyp looked about 1" across at most to me

the frag plug in the picture is 4" in front of the polyp... the polyp is bigger than the plug in the picture, kind of lets you see the scale of things i hope.
