It is an Acro.

I don't know if it's an Ultimate PM though. Did you purchase it, as an "Ultimate PM?" If so, was lineage provided? Ultimate PM should come with lineage.

Bought it locally from a very trustworthy source. Yes it was advertised as Ultimates PM, and like I said, he has no reason to lie to me. Probably the least expensive coral in his PACKED 300g. Didn't ask about any lineage...

kind of looks like an acropora gomezi that has been in captivity for a little while.

what the heck is an ultimate purple monster?

Is that supposed to be the same as a tyree purple monster? IF so it doesnt look like the same coral at all.

Not Purple Monster.

I have this coral, its just a Australian blue ployp acropora in my book - pretty nonetheless.

Really can't tell anything from pics I guess. Sure the Tyree posted looks great, but who knows what lighting it's been grown under/lighting the pic was taken at. Compared to what I posted. The blue acro you linked to is way too small to make any judgements. It's practically all white.
