Help with ID... Chalice Coral???

Can someone please help me ID this Coral? It was sold to me as a Chalice but its lifting off the plug around the edges and seems it would be soft to the touch from the way the edges are moving up and down due to the water flow... Definitely not hard or really encrusted on the plug like my other Chalice frag... I want to properly ID this guy to make sure it's in an ideal tank position... I'll try to take better pictures tomorrow when the lights are on too.

Thank you!

It definelty does look like a chalice. Mine has a similar growth pattern where it looks lifted off the plug while forming, but it does not wave or move from flow.

Could it be getting too much flow or light from being new to the tank? I have mine on the sand in moderate light and flow and I'm seeing growth.


Current Tank Info: 80g Shallow Rimless
