    Hmm i still think there has to be more growth to determine the second one. It could be a tip off a deepwater species or a section off a tabling species. There is just one of the puzzle pieces there.

    The last one i am changing my guess to Acropora insignis for now. But again we have no idea of how it is going to grow out into a colony, so there are a lot of options right now.

    Well this one finally started branching after 7 months of encrusting. You can see the white growth tip on the one branch. I basted it to get a good picture of the white tip. The coral itself is very, very "furry", similar to a millepora. It has it's normal polyps and it's longer white/translucent polyps out all day.
