That looks like a Valida Acropora. They will always be really purple at new growth, and greenish brown to the base. Here's a pic of what was sold to me as Valida.

It looks really similar to that, but when I look at it it looks like a table acro. So for care, high light, high flow?

Where mine looks spiky, and yours more flat, I think that might be a result of growth under different light (ie. yours had a much brighter light) therefore the flatter piece. Whereas, mine was problably was stretching under more minimal light. Don't know, just a guess. Nice piece though, either way!

Most likely an acropora efflorescens.
