    I know it's not much to go on, but essentially a rock with bright yellow/green 'polyps" ?? I'll try to get something clearer, but is it even coral?

    the indentations of the rock make me think somewhere in the direction of favia type corals. I have seen something similar when you have a "dead coral" that still has some life left in it and out come polyps

    If there is any chance of rescue, what am I looking at doing? Besides the obvious water params?

    If you can actually see coral mouth, maybe a rescue. The other thing is that it simply might be a sponge of some type too that is growing in the "favia homes"
