Help on identifying corals

Any help on what they require it anything. The guy at the store said they all feed off of light. But would like all your opinions

1. Some type of sps. Needs VERY strong lighting
2. Torch coral. LPS
3. Candy Cane coral LPS
4. Pink Flower Pot LPS
5. Mushroom Soft coral

Your Torch and Candy Cane require decent lighting like T5 or higher. Mushroom is super easy to keep alive. Flower Pot is very sensitive and hard to keep alive in a tank. And that first one like I said is a SPS and requires intense light, flow and pristine water. I'd suggest when buying coral ask the LFS what its called then go to liveaquaria.com and the right up to make sure you have the right stuff required to keep it alive and thriving.

Yeah the fest is definitely a birds nest of some sort. Put the birds nest at the top definitely. The torch and the candy cane can be placed in the middle range and the flower pot (red/pink goniopora) and mushroom should do fine as low as the sand bed. ...depending in your lighting.
