Except 10 looks like a blue sponge. And 1 is way too blurry to tell for sure.

1. Agree w/dzeadow, almost certainly a Lobophytum/Devil's Hand. IME blue ridge doesn't grow in that shape.

2. Probably Acrozoanthus/Stick Polyps.

4. Cladiella (finger/colt/cauliflower)

6. Maybe Muricea/Spiny Sea Rod. It's hard to ID a lot of gorgonians from pics (especially when they're blurry )

8. Looks more like Capnella/Kenya Tree to me.

9. Looks like Sinularia, maybe Nephthea or Lemnalia.

10. Definitely a blue sponge.

13. Probably Gracilaria/Red "caulerpa"

HTH,
-R

1) Devil's Hand (Lobophytum)
2) Uknown; most likely Acrozoanthus
3) Candy Canes (Caulastrea)
4) Colt Coral (Cladiella)
5) Flower Pot (Goniopora) or Zoanthids
6) Gorgonian (Unknown)
7) Clove Polyps (Clavularia)
8) Kenya Tree (Capnella)
9) Christmas Tree (Studeriotes)
10) Blue Sponge (Unknown)
11) Clove Polyps (Clavularia)
12) Flower Pot (Goniopora)
13) Unsure; Red Grape Algae?
14) A pretty picture
15) Green Star Polyps (Pachyclavularia)
16) Zoanthids or Alveopora; I can't tell. Could even be Goniopora
17) Hairy Mushrooms (Rhodactis)
18) Green Star Polyps (Briareum)

Those are the best I can come up with given the quality of the pictures.

Try setting your camera to macro mode, it should look like a little potted flower, it will allow you to focus on much closer objects.

I think Travis nailed it on head, but.... 9 is almost certainly not a Studeriotes. Check out this link: http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/sh...readid=1281418
for a pic of one.

Looking more closely at Pic 9, I think you're right. It isn't a main stalk with branches coming off. In the picture, even the branches are branched. It could be another Cladiella or similar Alcyoniidae.

Also, looking back at Pic 4 it could be a Sinularia.
