    Not the best picture. Any tips are welcome.

    They have been in my tank about 4 hours.

    Be careful with placement, they can grow very fast and shade your corals, so lower in the tank can be preferable. Past that, more indirect flow can help promote more tabling.

    Your green apple looks like a Montipora confusa (I could be wrong, there are a ton of variants of montipora and I'm not the best at IDs) These grow even slower than caps and look at this.

    Thanks. The e-mail I received from the vendor had the Vivid's Ultimate Purple Cap labeled as Montipora capricornus and the Green Apple Cap as Montipora sp.

    sp. means they don't know the exact type of monti either.
