I know what organism it is, but not exactly what preys upon it.
Moray Eel and Grouper?

[Moray Eel; Humphead Wrasse/hide]
I don't think this is the proper way to hide the answer...
If I'm doing it wrong, can anyone explain to me how to do it?

Correct. And I read online that groupers prey upon moray eels, so correct as well :)

Perhaps:
Stylophora pistillata, because they have a wide range of different shapes/sizes/types/morphologies, and they also have a very diverse range (geographically)...?

Possibly...
Porites lobata because it is found worldwide, can be shipped and survive, is vigorous to survive an environmental issue, and is representative of scleractinians.
