New additions, help with id please

Got a few new additions, could use some help with identifying them please. I did ask there names in the shop but had forgotten by the time i got home.

I think this is some sort of Acropora?

Acanthastrea lordhowensis?

I'm pretty sure this is a Dragon Soul Favia?
Im really stuck with the id of the first pic.
I know the second is a Acan and the third is a Favia but really could use some help with the first one please.

I've never been any good with the crazy colloquial names people come up with for coral. I would agree that yes it is probably some sort of acro. It doesn't help that I'm colorblind, so terrible at picking out nuances in colors...what color is it?

Acropora aculeus? Looks like a green aussie.

Thanks for the replys, was told by lfs it was one of the easier sps to look after. Will do some more googling now i know what to search for.

I am really bad with IDs as well. When I first seen the picture it looked like some gorgonian to me. Until I seen that you think it might be an acro. Going from softie (gorgonian) to sps (acropora) is not a whole lot of help. So I didn't answer the first time I seen it days ago.

First one is an acropora, but identifying from a picture is nearly impossible since the appearance can change so much with lighting. Either way, the care for the acro is all pretty much the same.
