New Tank & Coral ID
So I just picked up a 12g nano last week for 300 bux off craiglist. Came with a yellow tail Damsel (way too aggressive, but pretty), an ocellaris clown, 2 turbo snails, blue legged hermit crab, and 6 soft coral and 15lbs of LR. Im new to the SW world, so don't know much about the different corals. I know one is a Candy Cane, (green I think). Since gettin it, I also picked up a cleaner shrimp.

So could anyone help me ID these coral? I know I'm a newb so yeah.. sorry for not knowing haha.

Candy Cane




The Other coral looks like #3, but without the little bumps, and its coloration is more of a blue-brown/dark purple. I thik they are some kind of mushroom??

Those almost look like Fire and Ice zoas, but I can't tell. If they are, then you have a great pickup. Once you get a colony you can frag them up and make some decent money off them (Zoa-wise).
