Old timers, trying to identify a swap coral

I have a thick smooth purple acro picked from a swap way back in the day, 2010 or so that was just labeled "Lokani" by member Tybox. It was either from a MARS or BAR swap. I still have it and it sure looks like Purple Monster. Not knowing for sure, I have always called it "Tybox Lokani". I know back then some reefers would just put the species name on the container as to let some of the later rounds get some "named" corals and am wondering if anyone knows anything about Tybox's collection. I see Tybox hasn't posted since 2010 so I'm not thinking a private message would do any good. Thanks in advance for any help.

My phone just does not want to take a picture of it, this is the best I’ve got for now. It has small white polyps.

I was hoping someone who knew / knows Tybox and collection would know for sure as I cannot call it purple monster without that confirmation even if it looks just like it.

Definately not a tort. Here’s a couple of better pictures, again, polyps are white when they are out, usually only at night. I have 2 frags growing out.

I'd be interested in a frag.
I run 400 W MH and that coral would do great in my tank.
Where are you located?
