So went to get some corals frags from a guy on Craigslist and he was really cool and gave me this peace of sps coral to try out in my tank since I've been wondering how sps would do in my set up anyways me being a bit overwhelmed with all the other coral I got forgot the name of the sps and I'd like to know what it is.
Here's a pic of it sorry for the low quality of it.

I am rubbish with SPS IDs since I've never really looked into keeping them, but...could it be a Pocillopora?

Corals can have rather vastly different needs in terms of lighting, feeding, and nutrient levels in the water. It's very common to have tanks that are simply not able to support certain types of corals because of this.

Thanks Donya for the reply but after looking that up I don't think it's Pocillopora :(

stylopora or pocillapora

id say poecillapora because of the knobbing that happens at the ends of the branches, stylos grow more long and extended without the "broccoli" effect

poecillapora

 
stylophora
