    Picked these up yesterday and neither I nor the guy I got them from knew what they were. I think they're montis but wanted to double check as the polyps in both are similar in size and shape to my blue sympodium.

    First is a blue with green polyps coral that has great polyp extension and looks to be encrusting the plug.

    Second is Green with brown polyps. Polyps seem bigger than on my other sps.

    Maybe flow pods or goni?

    Second one is probably a green spongode based upon the description.

    The top one looks like a goni or maybe a galaxea?

    Top looks to be cyphastria japonica

    I'd say cyphastrea for the first one as well.

    Thanks Josh, I've got under one of my 400w halide right now. Will move it to my Lps section at the outskirts of the tank.
