I received some sps colonies from someone getting out of the hobby. They were not taken care of in a long time and then just thrown all together in a holding tank even crowed and touching. Then they were going to be thrown away and offered to take them to hopefully save. At one time they were in an sps dominant tank well loved but been a couple years person had got out moved and left tank with someone. I have put them in my qt tank and they have stopped dieing and are healing and coloring up now. If anyone can give me I dear of what they could be I would be grateful. Only a few colored enough at the moment. And then a lot only frags so will wait on them til hopefully they look like something. I have 3 the colonies did the best. Number 1.

#1 is definitely a green anacropora and #3 looks like montipora palawanensis
I wondered about anacropora as well, but the growth form reminds me more of M. Spongodes without the purple.
Can anacropora grow that dense? Every one I've ever seen was super thin and tangly. Kinda like birdsnest

On coral #1. Ok when I saw green slimmer I thought the stag and new that wasn't it but, there is a slime ball Anacropora that it does looks like. Also the green M. Spongodes or M. confusa. So not sure how to tell the difference between them.

On coral #3 the encrusted part does look like the montipora palawanensis but the branching is throughing me off. Has anyone had theirs branch. I see some nubbs in pics but the branches on mine are 1-2 inches?
