Sps id??

Bought this at my LFS as a asst Aussie Table acropora.

Now when it came in it was pretty pale, brown.. but pink tips and polyps extended got a good deal at 50$ for a 5x5'' Colony, worth a shot since i was begging my LFS to track me a Red Planet Acropora, or any Table Acros for that matter.

i've had this just over a month now and it's coloured up amazingly, so much that i'm starting to think i scored a Red Planet?

curious to see what you guys think, its got green/blue colours in its tissue and the coral is dominantly Red/Pink.

It's showing quite a bit of colour as is, it'll get better as i continue to feed it... but i'm just looking for possibilities on the species.
