Here is a Purple Dragon Acropora
Rare Sps And Zoa Pack
Are you looking for a show name? Or a species name? IMO if it didn't come with a show name and lineage then you would be falsely attaching an existing name to it. Slapping show names on corals can be harmful. If that is not the same true dragon Acropora as mentioned then you could end up killing trying to mimic the care requirements that the true red dragon acroporas have. I think you would be better off trying to find the species. But that is just my 2 cents.
And as for species i believe it might be Acropora carduus.
Corals of the World Factsheet and images - Acropora carduus
Well this came straight from Bali, it was a mariculture coral. Acropora carduus was not on the list of that shipment. It can't come with a show name because it came straight from the supplier. I'm just trying to identify the species.
Do you know what was listed. Maybe we can narrow it down.
Separate names with a comma.
