Hi, After buying 20 kg of live rock from a lfs I recieved a few coral frags with the rock. I have identified a couple of them but don't know these ones. if anyone could help that would be great.

This one here extends it polyps fully at night, if that helps.

I think this one is still alive.

Bubble coral (?)

That last one definitely looks like a bubble coral with polyps retracted to me.

The first one looks like a duncan (Duncanopsammia sp.) No idea about the middle one. They do however all look like they could use some TLC.

Thanks SLACkra that is it, last night I fed it some finely chopped prawn and it has fully extened its polyps today. It is a very nice coral.
That last one is a bubble coral, thanks Osprey.
