That looks like a standard torch coral, from the genus Euphyllia, to me. Searching on those terms should turn up more information.

The human desires for instant gratification and immediate problem resolution cannot be satisfied with this hobby.

Not a frogspawn, since it only has one tip (for the most part). Branching hammers (E. parancora) don't have quite the hammer shape of the wall hammers, but they have more of a shape than that.

I'd call it a torch too.
