    I have several Acros that I have no clue about. Can anyone tell what these are? I know the pictures are terrible.

    This one is about 3-4 tall and is green with some blue at the tips near the polyps.

    This one is about 4" and the color is mostly bluish-purple.

    This one is about 1 1/2". It is medium green with deep red almost brown polyps. Not sure of the growth pattern of this one.

    Thanks. Did a little digging on google and the first two do appear to be some sort of tort. Will need to grow out to really know I guess. The last one is maybe some sort of prostratus?

    How about this one, anyone? Not an Acro. Got the frag about 9 months ago at CRC. Seems to barely grow...although admittedly, I did try to kill it twice.

    That would be my guess as well.

    Yes! That is it. The name was familiar... I just didn't put the name to the coral.
