    Hey! I was hoping for a little help with identifying some coral I have in my tank. I've received great responses already with help identifying other coral in the tank and I would love for that to continue.

    Thank you so much in advance for helping someone new to saltwater tanks!

    I agree as well. #3 is a bubble coral (Plerogyra sinuosa) and #4 i would say cynarina.

    1 is a sun coral which appears to be in poor health. make sure it is getting fed at least a few times a week
