Definitely a type of acropora,I like the icy blue types. Have you had it a while? Extended polyps are usually a sign of a happy coral.

Give it good lighting,proper flow, and time and I bet it will pick up some more color. White is not a common acropora color but it is a common symptom of lacking zooxanthelae.

The levels are on the high side,just let it eat up whats already in the tank water for a little while and I am sure it will acclimate nicely.
