Can anyone identify this cyan colored coral? (Branching Monti?)

https://youtu.be/pBPPpWm7TYg?t=993

In this youtube video he is showing some corals a an Australian store. I've seen many purple and green branching montis but never this cyan color. Is it even a monti?

That's what I was thinking. I've never seen them this color in any California store. Can't seem to find them online either except that one Germany site.

I MUST HAVE IT!

I've had these in the past. With the darker base, it always looks more purple.

That acro is pretty though.

I would wonder if diddling with the light spectrum was used to promote specific colors. Using just part of the blue spectrum the stokes shift in flourescing proteins can be manipulated to produce specific colors. But doing this is tricky and can be a a source of stress to corals making them very sensitive to changes.
