    I think this is some sort of Acropora?

    20151216_161650.jpg
    Acanthastrea lordhowensis?

    I'm pretty sure this is a Dragon Soul Favia?

    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.

    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.
