Hey!

just wanted some confirmation on what these are before I buy them locally.
Seller thinks maybe turbinaria. 7” wide across. Stony.
Any ideas?
also what is the round pineapple looking one?
Thanks! Still learning and excited to add some new corals if they will get along with my current gang ( I need identification so I can research) mostly I’ve got leathers and Euphyllia right now

I could really use some help, as well. I’m new to the hobby and I attended my first coral show.
I can’t find anything on proper care for what I was told would be an ‘easy’ coral for my tank.
they called it a Green Elkhorn SPS. The tips look like they are bleaching and may be too high up in the tank, but without research, I can’t be sure. Also, there’s a second coral I bought, that I’m having trouble identifying.
Any help is appreciated.
mill post the elkhorn picture first, then the mystery coral next.
also, if you have any links to a site/sites that help with identification and/or care, that would be huge.

The second looks like a montipora. Probably encrusting. They need some nice flow, good light and are fairly hardy corals if not stung by other corals.
The first one is not an elk horn that I have ever seen. It looks like another monti with some strange growth patterns. Many will make branches and they will grow with the flow. I hope someone else chimes in here on that first one.
