Is there such thing?? I called my LFS to see what coral they had and they said 'Turbin Coral' and I have no idea what it is or what the requirements are for it. I googled it but couldn't find anything.

Turbinaria ('cup coral') also known as 'scroll coral', 'pagoda coral' and 'turban coral' depending on the species (of which there at least five).

Ok thanks. What are the requirements for them? Are they all similar?

You may want to be careful with that site, I noticed a few inaccuracies on it. For example, they state that Bubble Corals prefer intense lighting and moderate flow for and that is just not the case, they are low light, low flow corals. Just one example, but anyone using it needs to be discerning about the information that is given there. Not all the info on there is inaccurate, but there is some.
