Hello fellow coral experts,

I've been perplexed by the ID of this Aussie coral and have yet to figure out if it will color up or stay a dark dull olive green color. Here is the actual piece and as my phone wasn't able to take a more real time color so I had to "de-equalize" the image in Photoshop to bring it as close as possible to how it shows in person. Thank you.

Dark blue and green corals need to be filmed in bright white light, usually 12k or maybe 14k. That's what I've experienced with torts and hawkins echinata anyway. Good looking piece you have there.
