Thanks,

I think the top is a sinularia, and I think you're right about the other two.

The top one is a Sinularia, the middle is a Capnella / Kenya Tree and I believe the bottom one is an Alcyonium spp. / Colt.

Thanks guys. Would the capnella be ok with SPS? The sinularia and the colt shouldn't be in a sps tank, I assume?
