Help with Several Coral IDs please??

So.... I got a TON of stuff at the SLASH frag swap yesterday. However, I won 2 corals in a raffle and got 3 from the "donor" program that I was not planning on. I haven't had any answers on their forum yet, so maybe someone here can help me ID these????

Raffle




Raffle - said Cabbage on the bag, cabbage leather??




Donor

I got 4 other new corals as well. If you want to see them I will post them in my build thread later.

Bottom one looks like a trumpet. I have flourescent green ones.. if it swells and fills with water and contracts at different times during the day then it is probably trumpets

The 2nd to last one, the green parts are the polyps.

The first one is not extending its polyps anymore... :/ .... I moved it up closer to the light, I thought it needed more light. No dice!

well

maybe the polyps arent extended all the way in the picture second to last..but in my opinion it would either be a pavona or hydnaphora species.an SPS coral..and most SPS corals are very sensitive to changes of any kind as well as less than prestine water perameters..

Yeah that one was a cabbage leather. The only one still alive is the cabbage. Guess I am not ready or prepared for LPS or SPS. Hated to see it happen but at least they were free. :( UGH!!

I am staying with leathers, corallimorpharians, softies, and zoas. At least I know I can keep those alive. My hammer is doing good too.

uh oh

well that sucks...although there are a number of really nice sarcophytons,sinularias, and lobos out there you could always try on some more hardy LPS and SPS.and its always good to test the water with frags first..sometimes its just a matter of the system being too new...as in under 6 months.

Nope its been set up since April/May of last year. Didn't even add any corals till late Oct. I usually keep a close eye on the water especially when I add something or something croaks (like a snail)
