Sure: Drs. Foster and Smith Diver's Den® - Acropora gemmifera

I was looking in the WYSIWYG section and it looks like they describe the various acros as staghorn, tabling, or digitate. But when I search for "digitata" it looks like that's actually a montipora?

Montipora Digitata is what I was talking about. The coral you linked me to is not what I meant.

Yes that would work but it may not keep that color under your lighting.

That`s why I put the soft corals that I did as I really dont think you have the par or intensity that SPS corals need. JMO

Well it certainly wouldn't make sense to add a colorful digitata if it's going to lose its color. I'll stick with the soft corals. Melosu, how come the cabbage leather in your tank is so much prettier than the one on liveaquaria?

Thank you all for your advice. I picked up a nice green finger leather today and it looks great. Can't wait until the regular light shuts off at 9 pm so I can see it in the actinics...

Is it normal for a finger leather to look droopy when moved to a new tank? I swear it was taller when I first got it, and it has wrinkles, like elephant legs. It's green and smooth, no polyps.

And it has the most bizarre hitchhiker attached to its base. From searching the web the best I can guess is a spiny oyster, about the size of a nickel.
