Hi,

I have three corals from the old owner that I cannot identify. All I know is they are gorgonian and hammer coral. Anyone know the market and scientific name of them?

Thanks,
Up

The top one is Euphylia paraancora. Sorry I don't know the scientific name other the gorgonias.

Agree with Mike, #1 is a Euphyllia.

I believe the Gorgonian in the second pic is the Candelabrum Gorgonian (Eunicea sp.) or may be a Pseudoplexaura.
Impossible to tell on the last one since polyps are retracted or the image is too small.
