I initially thought it might be a brain coral but it doesn't have the ridges. Could it be a mushroom coral?

Is it fire coral then - doesn't quite match the pictures I've seen.

No. Sorry, but hot wasn't a clue (I thought someone might think it was). Mushroom is kind of a clue though, although I'm not the one who said it.

Not yet. Think of mushroom varieties (and remember complicated is not always best).

P.S. Probably too big a clue, but I have got to get very busy around the house, and we also have to go somewhere.
