    That is a Tabling Acropora. Most any LFS that carries SPS will have some. The coloring is pretty nice on that one though.

    SPS are funny though... you can get one that looks exactly like it, then put it in your tank, and the coloring will be completely different.

    A lot of our sponsors sell tabling acros. Most have a species name listed on the item. Google the species name to figure out if it is tabling or not. If you like the colors, give it a chance.

    Remember, these things get big very quickly under the right conditions. Make sure to give it lots of room.

    A little tough to say from the pic, but looks a bit like an acro efflorescence. They are a bit rare and can be tough to find. There are a lot of tabling acros though, many are easier to find. Around here, LFSs don't have many SPS corals. I guess I should live in Kansas LOL. For us, there is DD and other WSIWG sites :)
