    I purchased these last year as frags in RAP (2016) NY. THey have all grown beautifully. Do not recall who I bought from and what they are called. Can someone ID these. Let me know if you want to see more pics of these. will do my best to describe them.

    #1) Mille. lot brighter than my other mille which also pinkish ridges with green polyps. See #2

    I assume you're looking for trade names since you called some of them by scientific name already. I can't help you with that but I just wanted to say those corals look nice and healthy and looks like you've done a heck of a job growing them. Well done.

    Thank you. #6 and #7 looks very similar to what you are suggesting. Lets see if there are any alternate IDs.

    1. ASD Rainbow Millepora or RMF Acid Trip Millepora. My guess is ASD
    2. Could be either of the first two as well but looks like WWC Ding Dang Millepora to me
    3. Tyree Mr. Pacman or OA Green Dragon
    4. No idea but niceee
    5. Dunno but super nice
    6. Ora pearlberry or Jkr rainbow or crayola plana
    7. The coloration reminds me of CB maleficent but looks like different species
