ID of some corals :)
Just to let you know my tanks been up and running for about 3 months and i put my first pieces of coral in 3 weeks ago :D
I feed the fish everyday, a good variety ( hikari marine sinking pellets, flake stuff with freeze dried brine shrimp and krill, frozen krill, live brine shrimp, frozen plankton (if they steal some from corals) and ive been feeding the corals some red sea coral grow liquid every other day.

Here's a pic of the tank before with just the LR in during the cycling process

Here it is now with a couple of corals in :)

Now for the questions,
I went tot he LFS and the marien guy was away so i had some guy who didnt know which was which so he charged all the corals at 24.95 each

Here they are, please help me with identification and feeding

Christmas tree (this was 11.95 btw lol)

Green xenia or something, heard it was easya and hardy

Not sure, some type of finger

Dunno, colt maybe?

Please help as i want to find out their names and do some further research
In the half term my dad's taking me to wildwoods where they have loadsa nice corals and ill be getting a hammer/anchor, frogspawn and soemthig else that take my fancy lol

starting from the top down......

first one, picture is blurry, but my guess would be a rasta leather, second is pachyclavari-something-hard-to-spell, basically green star polyps, (yes, they are easy to keep and they are a colonial encrusting polyp, so they will spread), third is some type of sinularia(finger leather), at first glance my gut instict was alconium (dead man's fingers), but that's unlikely, (good thing too, your's is easier), and the last one appears to be a kenya tree coral, which is another type of sinularia. looks good: )
