Can you please help me identify this acro colony?

Is it strawberry shortcake?

Thanks a lot

Coral can vary coloration based on factors like lighting intensity and nutrients. Sometimes people disingenuously juice their photos with post-processing too to make certain colors pop more.

Not to mention these names are meaningless and people can call any coral whatever they want to. Only scientific nomenclature is going to be specific and unchanging.

I agree but I just got this colony recently and there is no editing whatsoever straight out of the phone. I am thinking of selling it and as a start I wanted to make sure which acro it is to price properly. Thanks

Not the same species as a strawberry shortcake but I am not sure off the top of my head what it might be. Maybe someone can get an id from the last pic you provided.
