looks like a tree

hopefully i'm in the right forum. :)

i'm new to saltwater reefs and bought this awesome little guy at my local pet store and have been trying to find care information for it. i'm having trouble finding out what he is, though, because he looks similar to a couple different types but his little hands are a lot longer than anything similar that i've seen pictures of.

this picture doesn't show his purple tint because of the tank light and the angle i finally got a good picture from, but he is definitely purple-ish. i have other, not-so-great pictures if other angles are needed. (i wasn't sure if there is a max-number-of-pictures etiquette here or not.)

could anyone tell me what i brought home?
