Label on millepora to search where it's from?

I got a maricultered millepora mini colony from someone and there's a tag attached to it. (I attached 2 photos of the tag and coral. Part of the tag was deep under the glued coral so I'm not able to all if it.) The person I got it from said that supposedly you are able to search and see what the coral is and where it's from but they weren't sure.

Has anyone seen this tag and where I might be able to go to search it? Sounds kinda cool if you're able to do that.

Just by looking at the label I think it shows the coral was mounted last September and that it's simple an acropora which is the f2 generation, meaning it's a product of fragging a frag of a wild colony. Would be interested to see if there is more to it.

Thanks for replying. That would make sense it's a 2nd generation, F2. I was wondering of the O3 666 meant something at the top right corner of the tag. I wish I knew what company it is based on the logo too.

Again if I had to guess I would say that its coral frag number 666 and the o3 is a location like growout ocean table 3. I think these are more records for the company and how to track what they are growing and document it for quotas, rather than my benefit.
Would be happy to be proven wrong.
