    Looks like an acropora plana or nausta, it's beautiful. Hopefully Frick or Hunter will know.

    I wish it was the raspberry lemonade but I have not witnessed any of that pink/purple polyp before. This piece has always been blueish green, maybe if I move it up that may trigger a color change?

    Anyways thank you guys. Your help is much appreciated. Its been growing in my tank and I couldn't remember what it was sold to me as.

    I don't think you have to move it up. Coloration looks good in the image, I am pretty sure it looks even better in person. If it's growing I would not mess with it. If it isn't broken.....
