Yes, it looks like the common hairy mushroom, They are awesome, and a very nice coral to look at and a talker when they are quite big, and totally open. I have one and I love it, mine is green, and purple.

Cool the store I got it from had a huge one and I've heard many fish that bother corals won't mess with mushrooms so I'm hoping to use some in one of my next tanks.

All of them. Such a beautiful group of mushroom corals. Be careful with the yumas though, some are virtually bulletproof like the orange one you've got there and others come in with or develop, very easily, bacterial infections that not only cause them to melt away quickly but can infect your existing population. Most of the time its the more expensive yumas that have problems with this.

Thanks for the info. What precautions can you take?

Those are some healthy looking and beautiful yumas. In my experience the best precaution to take is to make sure that the yumas you're buying didn't just come in and they've had a little bit of time to settle in and make sure that the mouths aren't gaping when considering a purchase. If it looks questionable, leave it. Also, if you see any at the store spitting out brown goo, it could be digested food or it could be a bacterial infection. I know this will sound ridiculous but give it a sniff test, if it smells like rotting garbage or low tide at the pier pass on it as its likely dying from the inside out. I once bought a Yuma the day it came in and it was indeed sick with a bacterial infection and it wound up wiping out half of my 30 polyp colony. I've read about some people quarantining with Cipro but I've never tried it myself.
