          How about these two shots today. Reason I am trying to find out which SPS is that this particular one seems very difficult and it just seems impossible to hold the original color (light pastel pink) during shipment time, the current color is slightly darken. Would really like to get hold of another one during the new shipments and try it again.

          Perhaps the lowered nutrients now might help.

              Yes, they are the same colony. About 8 months growth.

                In that case it's A.Idonthaveacluensis

                  As Bob`s, my guess would also be Acropora polystoma:

                    Thanks guys, I still could not find more details abt this species.

                    Seems like they need strong lights and strong random waves. Looks like the requirement is met at the current location I placed the colony. Let's see if zeovit could help to hold it's original color.

                      losmandy, im going to have to go with A. Clathrata. Especially with the details you gave me... "difficult". That definitely fits this species. Also, the reason why Clathrata is my choice is because of the way the coralites come out from the side of the stems. Look at these pics for reference:
