Anyone care to take a stab at what this SPS could be?
Purple skin with greenish/yellowish polyps.
Skin will turn dark greenish as it shows signs of growth.

Acropora valida aka bonsai aka tricolor valida aka garf bonsai depending on where you got it. Itís a classic. Common, inexpensive, but absolutely beautiful. Encrusts for miles.
