Wondering if anyones has this or has seen it in the hobby/ might know the specie?

I got a couple clippings of the last acro from a display tank at the last salt shop in town. They were phasing out their salt water.Had no one with coral experience around, and no idea the source or species.
Now ive had them almost a year, and still dont know anything except they grow quick and are not brown anymore.
Growing faster than any acro i have including green slimer, and must be very hardy to have survived the abandoned tank they came from.
Photos are from when i got them into the display and also a few months into growth/color change.
Ill post a current photo tomorrow.
If anyone can point me in the direction of a possibly species (Or few) that would be cool
Just a curious feeling i have.

Photo from this morning. It may be a bit pale due to nutrients getting low, but growth is gnarly fast. Just under 10 months since acquired as a brown nub.

Awesome, thanks for the reply. I can see resemblance to both of those, ill look more into them.
Been lowering display light cycle and adding more aminos, hope to get the green back into the base. Few other acro have gotten more pale so, that seems like the path to follow.
Kinda reminds me of Aussie gold or miyagi tort.

I'll try to get a shot of mine later tonight when I get home, (Aussie gold) but the growth form is almost identical to yours. Lower light will bring out the green base of it is Aussie gold. Not sure if the miyagi is the same or not. Seems to be a lot of confusion on that subject.

Makes sense, i have been increasing my light output over the last 6 months and the base color left....

Here is my Aussie gold. Super fast grower, hardy, and nice colors. Greenish base fading to a brown/gold color and purple/blue tips and polyps.
The white splotches seem to come and go. No idea why.
I think it's hanging around 220 PAR. Color was much better when it was down around 175ish.

Now that I look at them together, the radial corallites on yours are much more evenly spaced.
@C. Eymann is really good at this sort of thing
Mine is in alot of flow, lps would not want to be around it for sure. Wonder if that makes much difference. It had more sporadic corallites at the shop i got it from, in lower light and much lower flow.
Thanks for sharing!
