I'm not sure what it is, but I have 2 colonies and had them under different lighting. High light is what that coral likes best. It's a wild colony btw. Good luck with it.
It's thicker than a bonsai.

Wow what timing, I was just given a super brown colony of this by someone who had crappy lights. I have 2 tanks, one with really high light and one with les but still good LEDs. Mr X would this do better under intense LED's or should i let it color up under less intense?

I just don't know the intensity of your LEDs to be able to tell you which tank is better for it, but if i had to guess, I would say to start it low in the higher light tank and move it up gradually until you see it respond.

I placed this directly up top with my Taos at 65% white and it instantly started to color up and green polyps popping every where. But at night with lights off I shine a flashlight on it and its white and brown. Just the tips are purple.
