That looks more like a homophyllia australis (formerly scolymia). Meat corals are much fuller in the skirt area and really puff up more.
They both like similar conditions so pop it on the sand bed with low/moderate flow.

I've seen these that were red turn a similar colour under older led lighting (like ai sols) so you might see a colour change as it looks like it should be more red.
