    RED: ?
    ORANGE: Richordia

    Thank you! Some of them have been living for more than 3 years, and some even grow by themselves.

    Yes to the Sarcophyton/Toad Stool.
    The Tree Coral also looks a little like a leather, might be Sinularia, you'll have to compare images to other images of the names I provided.
    I believe the ID's are correct.

    And Oldfishkeeper is correct, you have beautiful corals. :)
