    I got this coral from lfs and it is really taking off. Color is purple enough to kind of blend in. This is a really fast grower. It has doubled in size in just about a month or so. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. TIA

    It's a beautiful coloration, a lot of nice purple. If I had to guess I would say Miyagi Tortuosa or other Tortuosa.

    It is growing more along shoots and very little ,if any encrusting. Thought that was kind of odd, but not complaining. Starting to get a lighter color in the tips. Don't want to call it yellow, but lighter.

    I googled it and it is definitely close with the lighter tips.although I do have what was sold to me as a Myagi tort in my tank. This has more of a "pearly " glow to the purple. That's not to say my other supposed tort is not. Thanks again for everyone's guidance on this.
